Mimie



sores spitting up on her bare back
parasites clinging to the last hair
on her droopy ears
little bald chubby puppy
sitting forlornly by the country road

did she lost her mom
to the roaring man-made monster
on the road
or was she thrown away
by fragrant pretty mistress or master

she wagged her pointy bare tail
as I stopped and said hello
and closed her eyes in relief
when I wrapped her in a towel
much to my then beloved's chagrin

howling in baths
crying, wrapped in medical poultice
she clung to me
tears in her eyes, smiles in her ears
until she could stand sturdy
she claimed my lap most evening

grew she did with much love
beautiful fluffy fur,
her tail a fringe
her eyes were clear
my pretty Mimie Girl

she found a mate
and had many puppies
whom she loved until they left
for other homes
to be loved by other masters

I knew she wished
we could keep all her children
and I wished with her too
most evening we sat together
in silent reverie

when my beloved left
for someone prettier than me
Mimie sat with me patiently
as I ranted and raved
wallowing in my silly tears

She was always there
to say goodbye when I left
in the morning
and hello when I came home
at night

She is gone now
to the heavens that dogs go to
I hope to see her someday
and hear her joyous bark again
and look into her deep brown eyes.

Eat & Shit

I’ve got a dog I named ‘Eat & Shit’
Would you care to guess as to why I named it?

Bad enough he eats a ton, but he shits out twice as much
As he ever takes in

Now that we’re in November, when the Minnesota air is cold
Making man and beast shiver

Eat & Shit will cover the backyard with a layer of frozen dog turds
Stuck together hard

When it seems not an inch, has not been covered by
That shitting Son-of-a Bitch

It’s covered by a blanket of  white pristine beauty
A snowstorm covers the disgust, so Eat & Shit can renew his duty

Till he’s covered the backyard in another layer of shit
And again another blanket of snow hides it

Again and again, Eat & Shit covers my lot, with ugly piles of
Shit colored poke-a-dots


Till April’s thaw reveals Eat & Shit’s one and only true purpose
‘To eat and shit!’

Frozen dog turds by the truck load
‘Before the warming sun makes them mushy, better pick them up in the morning cold!’

Sugarbear...

Look as little Sugarbear
Ponders the cosmos in your eyes
You understand all for him  
So he gets to wag his tail  
To be free of our troubles
Since we understand too much...
While he knows no good or evil...
