The Search

The Search

Every day at noon
the search would
stop and the trio
of Labrador retrievers
would perk up as
the Frisbee emerged.
*
After a long morning
sniffing a mountain
of South Florida garbage
for a body at the dump
the dogs
needed a break.
 *
They get bored
one cop explained.
On the third day
of the search
we reporters gathered
around a television van.
 *
We watched on a
 monitor as a
district attorney far away
announced if Michael Jackson
would be charged with
child molestation.
 *
They found
the body
at quitting time
that day
and we
descended the mountain.
