a narrow passageway

The tapering perspective down the alleyway:
The angle of the alley
The rigid alley
The alley’s straightness
The backdrop of blues
The withering weeds
The rotting boards
The pallid privacy fences
The prickly hedges of holly
The invading kudzu
The high-pitched telephone poles
The decomposing mesquites
The mysterious rattlers
The black garbage urns
Dotting the alleyways like angels of
Death, waiting to collect
the refuse of dead dogs.
