How do I know what’s going on
in the mind of my dog?
I look, I learn and I discern

I watch him stretch to pee
Splatter on his leg
Then step right in the yellow sea.

He sniffs the ground
Looks towards a sound
Chases anything with
A tail

He scares a bird
Without a word
Just cuz he will

He has no fear
Loves a scratch behind his ear,
On his belly and his butt

Easy to figure out this mutt
I’ve known many of his clan
As a different breed of animal we call man.shadows

But I love him
