Concrete Memory

Golden Shovel after Natalie Eilbert
I walk on concrete with
my dog Charlie. If any
grace shines down lucky,
our mammal hearts shimmy on like I
remember Boston rhythm. Will
you peer inside my memory? A bee
buzzes me back beside
this sapling I want to love, a
growth stretching into an urban tree.
