Dogs 2016

QUIZZICAL CANINES
(10/29/16)

these dogs
don't
challenge

don't
threaten

they make
plenty
of noise
but their barks
are of
a questioning
nature

frustrated
perhaps

they are trapped
in their yards

imprisoned

they are
annoyed

curious

at this
human
walking by

while their
people
are sedentary

inside
while the
four legged
family members
are left
out

their questions
eventually diminish
as I fade
from sight

I feel
bad
for them

but I don't
know
what to do

talk
to their
owners?

"get
your lazy asses
outside!

go walk
your dogs!"

I don't see
that working
well

I continue
on

before
someone puts
me
behind
a fence
