Dog

Rating: 4.5
The dog trots freely in the street
and sees reality
and the things he sees
are bigger than himself
and the things he sees
are his reality
Drunks in doorways
Moons on trees
The dog trots freely thru the street
and the things he sees
are smaller than himself

Were I a blessed dog, I might be able to abide the Trump administration.

It reads like 'A day in the life of a dog' where the dog is 'like a living questionmark' just like his human counterpart. An exploratory poem indeed. Thanks.
