The Girls

The Girls

he called them “the girls”

this group of deer

who still make their way

across his lawn

to the small space of woods

on the other side of his street

“the girls” keep coming

despite the Saturn dealer

who cleared some trees

to make room for the Saturns

despite the Thruway

which shuttles cars and trucks

from west to east

and back again

despite the mall

built nearby

which spins the traffic

from out of control

to chaos

a little after dusk

I left his home

as “the girls” were

making their way too

one stopped in the street

to turn and look at me

we both stood still

but she was clearly wondering

if I had a permit

to be there
