+ <literallayout xml:space="preserve" class="normal">I notice, briefly, a desk chair rolling down the sidewalk,
+its plastic wheels loudly, crisply, propelling
+it down the hill, a man chasing behind it.
+And I sit there, look up at the tall maple
+ through this huge glass window
+its foliage thick and red,
+the ridges, deep and grooved to hold a dime.
+The sun is warm still, I know; the maple’s shade
+is like a sip through a straw, cool and impermanent,
+always asking me to abandon my drafting
+to another day.
+Nevertheless, I look forward, out to the thin green
+blades of grass, sigh quietly, and then go back
+to whistling the T-square across the table.</literallayout>
