Driven Memories: Howling Dog - Poem by Roy William Gotaas

Driven memories
To the now
That isn’t any more........

As a child
In the blue-dark London night,
On a car roof by my bedroom window,
A dog howled liftingly,
Split jaws snapping my sleep.

Sick so young,
That already a dog cried Death
Over my bed and murdered sleep?
I hid in the safe-cave under the blanket
And waited for corruption.
