Dogs 2015

driving
to work
down
a city street
at almost 15 mph
over
the posted limit

passing
a cop
going
the opposite
direction
just as fast

no braking
to admit
guilt

making
that nervous
check
in the rear view
for flashing
lights

seeing
nothing
but the quickly
disappearing
taillights

gives
one faith

in some
purpose
for the day

or else
we both
just had better
things
to do
