Spaghetti knots

hand me a paw

the dog whining in its

sleep because

it dreams

of being a human

wanting to control another dog

watching the hairy tuff roll over

belly exposed

for a treat

to enter that same belly

where the wolf happens

good boy good dog

sit yes sit

rest now like an animal

 

the dog wakes up

his master is asleep

stomach poking from his outer coat

like a vestigial trait

unprotected and useless

he dreams of running

but is too hungry for a treat

to do more than wait

*

the skies are filled with mocking, gossiping birds

since you’ve left little to remain

on the bench between us where we sit

though i do feel very much like laying

on the grass that’ll learn to grow around me

and is punctured with recycled pesticide signs

that used to be something else

like an origami which used to be paper which used to be trees

that may have once been in this park

holding those brief birds above

who will one day fly around the world

during summer and winter

hoping for home in between
