dog has a name
dog loves to bark
dog runs like a fugitive
dog is in love with the cat
the orange one
with the bad temper
the rat killer
the killer of rats

dog has an address
dog rarely receives mail
from credit card companies, or
publisher’s clearing house
dog never worries about identity theft
no social security number
no investments

dog has a name,
a bark, a reputation
all the old ladies wave
and call her by name.


invite me---
I swim away
from my work.
I am free
                & lost.
