A poem for May

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

The dog days are now! Listen here.

Why dogs are better than people

Because they are.

Because they are not cats.

Because they have no theories,
and never weary me
with talk of rights, self-
esteem, or some such
metaphysical crap.

Because they like the way things smell
and never pretend they don’t.

Because, for dogs,
everything,
every moment,
even this one,
is their favorite,

and when told
not to bark,

they still do.
