A capricious deity has scattered sequins across the backyard. In the flashlight’s beam the frosted grass glitters, adorned with broken star glass, snow melt drops caught in a transition to ground water. The dogs’ eyes are two alien amber lights that appear and disappear in the spotlight, a ray cast into the shrubs, over the trees, around the field’s edge and neighbor’s yard. Overhead Mars glows red and the Big Dipper sprawls across the sky.
