Dog - Poem by Katherine Gallagher

Dog waits in and out of shadows.

Dog dives around chairs and feet.

Dog looks for the spill of hands.

Dog sings the Ballad of Less and More.

Dog sleeps with one eye open.

Dog’s life isn’t negotiable.

Dog circles moons of language.

Dog barks for homecomings.

Dog is a name away.

Remember you can’t lose Dog.

Sooner or later, Dog will find you.

    Freedom within the chain of love. Not only expectation but it's perhaps demand...Dog will find you................. Finally obedience is our last choice. Well exposed. (Report)Reply

    Yes- Dog can do anything for the Master. Dog is loyal and does not leave the closed door of true Master. So, we need to learn some lessons from DOG.
