Hunting the past

Walking the aisles of Home Depot

There is an old man with an old dog

A hunting hound

And his hunter,

Scouting the aisles

For possibilities

And poinsettias

The shadows of boy and puppy hover over them

Like plaid and pine needles

I smile

He frowns

The dog wags.

Bright red flowers tucked under his arm,

They exit into the sun.
