imagine a moment one night

clear night
local alley cat complains
to a street violin player’s refrains
socialite’s teacup chihuahua
yips along in time
empty gelato dish and spoon
float away on waiter’s hand
silver crescent hovers
reflected in my cup
a hook on a line in a milky lake
my attention caught
you reel me in
mind wanders as images scatter
off the fluttering surface
pen materializes in hand
table rocks as words appear on paper
these words
