Stirling Front Door

Dog sits to the
right
while stone(d) gargoyle
sits to the
left.
They both guard, curiously
watching foot traffic,
vehicles;
waiting for road
crew.
All winter long,
church street waits to
see
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
dog
nor the gargoyle –
us 3 staring out at road,
torn
like a farmers main drive way.
