Be Still and Listen to the Dog Dream


Be still
And listen to the dog dream
No matter
That the neighbor’s sidewalks
Are shoveled down to the concrete
And yours still look like
An icebox cake
Someone forgot
To personalize
Sit still
And listen to the dog dream
No matter
That the fact sheet
Selling the joys
Of regular colonoscopies
Is half-written
No matter that love
Is elusive
God gone
And Vincent Price
Your latest crush
Has been dead since 1993
Sit here quietly
And listen to the dog dream
As if nothing else
Matters in the whole world
Except the whoop whoop whoop
Sound he always makes
Through his nose
Is exactly like a WWII submarine
Just before it dives

  1. I always wonder what is going through those doggy brains when they do that. Sometimes it's obvious, but others, not so much.
