Night-Dog Dreams and Advises – Poem

pic of bassett hound poem

hear what you think?

I hear what you think when it tumbles through your breath.

 

the night awaits me like a dog with droopy eyes

when are you going to come home, she asks?

 

when are you ever going to listen to

and love your dreams?

 

the sadness spills from a cup of overrunning latté

she is patient, and gives her time to avoid the vet.

 

waddaya mean? i don’t even drink latté.

did you say you would listen? then absorb:

 

latté has milk, lots of warm milk.

aren’t you allergic to so much milk?

 

maybe stop drinking milk.

see if the nervous stomach responds.

 

i thought you were giving me a cool listening poem.

I am, and you fight to listen.
