Brown Dog


Brown dog grown old
Bones sticky like mine
On cold mornings

She sleeps mostly
One ear and eye open
In case of emergency

Plays at being a puppy
Stamping little round feet
Impatient for treats

Pretends her back legs
Are still strong enough
For long enough to play

Returns to healing sleep
Dreams of old days
Of racing wind on the beach
