Dog love

Dog love

Dog love

 

Of course dogs love the same way we do,

even if our human minds narrow it into loyalty

or faithfulness with their busy machinery.

 

She kept me awake all night, pacing,

balancing the certain with the uncertain:

back and forth; back and forth.

 

Her claws fretted the kitchen floor,

eyes on the darkened windows,

nosing the strange air in search of

 

any familiar molecules of her master,

but finding none. All the while

those anonymous surgeons were

 

spinning his life like a china plate,

piecing together the broken heart,

somewhere on the edge of a nearby town.
