A Little Husky
Pearled, where an oak root swept above frost & ground
To form a hovel. Rescue—and that which happens next.
A ting that pulls the ear's perk. Charmed plated kale.
Twenty-eight muscles fold to find a fish gone dry and
Here comes the day full towed under by fog and still-
Born instincts. Hollowed hearth. A home here. Candles,
Spies. A juvenile—no smart he has not fully earned.
