“Baby Torn from Womb Doing Well” – headline, Denver Post , 10/5/2000

I wonder about the dog dish in the rain.

Is it still raining?

Is the dog thinking about it too?

As her bone-shaped bites of kibble
sponge up in a mush…
much the way thoughts
are supposed to do
just before they become the thick paste of sleep.

And who out there,
who among you,
would feed the dog If I did not wake up?
