—-for CHD

Ah the inertia, the amplitude
and big bang of the dog bark
across the water, an elasticity
of sound, a redshift toward
the red end of the spectrum
a transitional phase that resists
the geometry of motion – call it
a stellar explosion more energetic
than a nova, more white dwarf
than wind shear, a sound that causes
liquid to flow uphill and matter
to resist any change in motion –
call it the Doppler Effect, the change
in frequency of a wave where
the magnetic field escapes velocity,
call it motion where its weight
is the only force acting on it,
call it entropy, call it an alarm clock
to let the dog out.
