DEAR NEIGHBOR: Situational Performance

October 17, 2015 — Chilhowee Park Neighborhood

Situational Performance

Neighbor, I know you think it was Rosie,
but it wasn’t. And again, I appreciate your
thoughtful reminders to keep my dog

off your turf: the nuggets you stoop
to move, handle, deposit on my
porch. The truth is, dear neighbor,

these could have come from anyone!
They’re a bit too large, a bit
too dark, a bit soft to have been

the work of my little Rosebud.
