Charlie, sunrise is a three-legged mongrel dog,
going deaf, already blind in one eye,
answering to the unlikely name, 'Lucky.'
The sky, at gray-blue dawn, is a football field painted
by smiling artists. Each artist has 3 arms,3 hands,3 legs.
One leg drags behind, leaving a trail, leaving a mark.
The future resembles a cloudy dream
