Stirling Front Door

Dog sits to the
while stone(d) gargoyle
sits to the
They both guard, curiously
watching foot traffic,
waiting for road
All winter long,
church street waits to
what tom-foolery will
happen this spring-into-summer
into perhaps fall.
Will last years road, sidewalk
and water system be
completed? Properly?
I don’t know,
neither does the
nor the gargoyle –
us 3 staring out at road,
like a farmers main drive way.
