Vignette Of An Evening In Texas With A Dog - Poem by Bill Grace

The dog is aware
of the child
on the other side of the street
and asks to visit.

The child is aware
of the dog
and the young mother affirms
we can come over.

'Skipper' (the dog) thinks
that he is Lassie.
Child and mother affirm this identity.
He is special
he is loved
he is cute.
He gives kisses
on the nose
to little girls
who like him.

The South Texas evening
is not hot
is warm and pleasant.

The cat lays on the walk
the dog decides he will not
harass her this time.

Wife pays for dinner.

Daughter - 18 - is out on a date.

A sign on a door calls out to me
in bold letters
the word:
TOGETHER.
