Peter Cooley that we admit someday we all will die? We oâer them that triï¬e every day. But every morning, stars against my face until theyâre blinded by the sun at noon, I go out, half my belief dumb faith, my eyes half-lidded on invisibles but focused on my dog, scattershot mutt. He leads this blind man on his morning walk. I follow his tail. I follow the red hole allowing him his random defecations. Never the morning I thought I might see but only this, competing paradise, these gold rivets the skylineâs fastened with, these silver-embossed footsteps where I dance, these ever-changing weathers of my words nectar to me, honeys and ambrosias. My dog has never thought about his death. This is why, long after I am gone, his progeny, never aspiring to soul, will lead some other fool down other streets, who tells himself, that fool, imperishings lie either side, sheer beauty of the world. A world like the New Orleans live oaks a sheen on leaves weâve never seen before! Since we have eyes to time our stay on earth, and feet to claim our place, our vanishings. prairie schooner
