The Female Dog's Back

.

The female dog's back
driven and drawn by her past
shrouded in thick smell of flesh and blood
in pulses
indifferent to seasons and reasons
yet, afraid of both

The female dog's tied
to a tree, barking at nothing
her sigh and sight toward me 
once again demanding
yet begging 
my loins got charred for no less

Mammal born mammal and wrath to many
I'm not allowed to                       cross the fence
Nor to jump over, I tried
to clear her mixed origin, to comfort her hair
to answer her anguish with humane care 
to explore the mud and dig to hide

this thirst, which is mine and hers, which can't last
I yield to the smell, the primal reveille
into long hours
of waiting and madness
a command of ten summers
that soffocates the siesta

She's tied and there
                   the fence
From her scent-marked dwelling
she growls at my tongue
that couldn't fit in my mouth
She ought to know by now ...

She ought to know by now
whether she leaves again or unties the rope
whether I jump over the fence or not
that something like her
can happen at any time
but it doesn't matter if it doesn't

A Dog Day Afternoon

If you really love some-one
Then it shouldn't be so hard
You just put him on an leash
And simply walk him
Across the yard,
The heck with all the implication's
What are the chances'
They would reject him right away
Fore it takes' raw courage
To bring them home one day
A family bond is strong that way
               - And -
To meet the family right away
  The re concussion can be great
Though it take's much skill
        To articulate
                 Or may be,
It could be just a big mistake
                     -
Then if it is a dog
Then they barely know him
As you see, what come what may be
                      -
Sure they may know of his nature
Maybe just a couple of fleas'
But, what then can they really say
Fore he is the lesser of God's creatures'
And you have already given
           Him a name,
   And most of all,
He is yours',
                      -
He is your's to claim
Some how or another
Surely, he should be easier
          To tame,
A dog will all ways' have his day
In a manner of speaking
You just have to keep him eating
     And not let him run astray
And he surely will be worth keeping
      Every dog shall have his way
But people are so much harder
To display
