and post notes and photos about your poem like Doug Vinson.
This is longer than many poems on PoetrySoup. But it's only 1052 words. Most of the lines are short - this is Free Verse, after all. If you love dogs and have patience, then no problem. If you like dogs and have even just 2 or 3 minutes right now, great.
Even if those don't apply to you, you're here already, so please read it.
ANY criticism is fine with me. You don't have to pull punches or be extra nice or not say something because of the normal way PoetrySoup is. Fire away - it's all good with me, and I will not take offense and I will give you the best answer I can.
