Just over there

The chimney on the roof
of the furniture shop
turned its neck
because it was a pigeon
which was actually a dog
with fur that was foam
because it wasn’t a dog
it was a sleeping bag
stuffed with rocks
that were balled fists
made from bags under eyes
on the face of a ghost
looking at the roof
for something to look forward to.
