PAUL’S POOCH PANDER

PAUL’S POOCH PANDER

A neighbor passes through the room,

A shopping cart we assume…

But inside

His four-legged pride,

A grunting chihuahua, well-groomed.

This room through which he’s plowed

Has a sign—no pets allowed—

What could be better

Than skirting the law’s letter,

Running his dog through…under shroud?

LITTLE SOUNDINGS

LITTLE SOUNDINGS

While I sit here typing

Little grunts are going on…

Like a tummy in trouble,

Or a pig with booties on.

I look into the Office—

Only Eric and Daria there…

Neither one is sounding

Like the noises passing near.

I think it was a Doberman-colored

Chihuahua in the hall,

Being carried by his Master,

The kind and older “Paul”.

They’re headed for the car

For a ride, no doubt…

The best part of the deal

Is that “Bandy’s” going out.
