Dancing With Leaves

My dog does a jig in the window 
as I gather leaves into bag number forty
and I'm not sure if it's me 
he wants to dance with
or the swirling leaves that escape my stuffing
but I appreciate his cheering me on
as my iPod plays its melancholy raking mix
and the sun makes me look taller and thinner
on the newly swept lawn.
