Still A Man's Best Friend


a dog is a good
escape
you take it with
you
in your arms
towards the door
of the house
into a garden
into a path that
leads to the woods
and you walk
with it
and you think a
lot and
the dog
does not speak

you like this
the world listens
the dog
jumps
waggles its tail
and moves
ahead of you

always the best
of friends.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
