jug

Updated: Sep 16, 2021

Old dog.

Bitten.

We were both bitten.

Man-made teeth tore porcelain just like paper in postage.

Your bite was careless in a box.

Mine a paper clip.

Marked and unwanted.

A nuisance.


Shadow dog – do you play in the midden?

Where newspaper holds you hairless,

Lettered stains of lowercase .

How we both fell from shelves to plains.

Oh blanket!

Bite faster in future,


Not twice to be made shy.
