My Dog Smells


Jackie 1986 - 2002

My dog smells

the faint scent of
cats to chase.

Her nose twinkles
like a black star,
when it’s chicken
on Sunday.

She reads the garden
breeze like a child
with a first comic;

empty looking air
is full of information,
messages incoming as
she fills her lungs.

And when, in the woods,
she finds where
foxes have been,
she rolls, and then…

my dog smells!
