My favourite new game
is watching which raindrops
will fall on the wires
of our clothesline
whose yellow,
plastic-coated pin-stripes
humming inaudible notes
that I can see.

And now I understand
that when you’re staring out
at “nothing,”
the fool isn’t you,
it’s me.

For Bennie; the all-seeing, one-eyed cat.
