During a break in the rain, flies find the dog’s latest offerings. A damp-looking mouse creeps along the base of the wall.
A mouse descends the wall into the garden and makes her way to the pile of brush at the back. A honeybee hovers over a spot of blue paint.
A mouse climbs the wall behind me and disappears into the neighbors’ garden. The lonely dog at the end of the block barks on and on.
