A Black Dog Named Red

from my little corner of the wide wide world 
actually not mine, I’m just inhabiting it for a bit
I just want to sit quietly and peacefully 
watching smoke curling and floating 
in the crisp cool morning air
from the red incense stick I got 40 of for $2
egyptian jasmine is the soup of the day
drifting without a care in the world like I used to
disappearing out the open louvred window 
candle flame steady as she goes
red candle a glow maintain course
tea steaming red cup composition
sky brightening crack of light 
black dog named Red 

laying on the floor
