Watched by a chipmunk at the end of the stone wall, I hold a mouthful of coffee in my cheeks, do my best to look as if I know how to live.

  1. THE STAND-OFF

    What does he know about being alive
    that the chipmunk would not know?
    Would laughing at his misadventure
    be one of his given talents? When he
    mimics the nutcracker with puffed-up
    cheeks worked out by a mouthful
    of caffeinated brew, might the rodent
    hysterically guffaw (in its own style),
    when he chokes on the mis-swallowed
    coffee, coughs his lungs out, spins
    out-of-body in a near-death episode?
    Betting odds: Who gets to laugh last?
