Second Marriage

Where they’ve argued
in the yard, evening
works its calm
around tools
plunked in chops
of grass. The porch
sticks out like a jaw.
On the clothesline,
a white shirt stills,
falters, and re-begins,
awkward in halting wind,
while a bra with bright
designs flurries
in delay. A voice
calls the dog,
who comes at once.
Words are not
repeated much.
