Decoy

The owl decoy
Protecting the
garbage outside
The Burger King
Drive-thru
fooled us both

then you were
Reminding me
About our
first apartment

how the
Raccoons
would dig through the trash

remembering
how their eyes would glow
in the glare of the headlights
of our car

giving us blank stares
a cold black night

leaving the parking lot,
My eyes
Follow
The
decoy

his head never turns
