What is That

He and his lady
stare up at the tree
what is that?

They stand
on the sidewalk
alongside the delivery truck
as men unload
sodas and water
in 5 gallon jugs

What is that
says the “Silver Ghost”
with blue starlit eyes

I look too
but I see nothing
I was expecting a bird
or a squirrel

Both he and his lady
are transfixed,
to all movement around them

What is that
I wanted to know


Note: “Silver Ghost” is one of the names for the Weimaraner.
