POEM: Canis Familiaris

For Mimzy

Perched, she stares at me with challenging eyes
Like old Smaug on his stolen gold
It’s a challenge
to describe how she speaks without words
a sure touch to the leg
can mean so many things
depending on the tilt of her eyes
the heft of brows
the way she tests the air
but it always has meaning
even if I am sometimes too stupid to understand.

  1. As a parent, I totally empathized with this one. :)

  2. Man...I can't even imagine. My dog makes me feel dumb. A kid would turn me right into Rain Man.
