One Dog, Two Cats, Two Dogs


I’m with the dogs again;

I should set out a shingle


Neighbor’s dog (the only

Dog from whom I’ve

Received real hugs)


Friends’ cats, exercises

In indifference, until I’m

The only one to feed



These two dogs in the

Family are older, whiny,

And demanding


I love them both


What kind of irony that

Saint Francis helps me

With my pets but has not

Yet arranged for the

Curing of my allergies
