Poem about my dogs, with whom I napped each afternoon all through my first pregnancy. Joshua, Rachel, Whiskers, myself, mongrels all.


            Pack Attack

I lie on the bed with my dogs.

One is indignant, hates the others

upbraids me for having them.

Another is long-faced, hot and heavy

And takes my spot.

The third, on her back, is a

comedy of contortion,

licks my hand, needs nothing else.

I think, what is the lack this is?

What, the fullness, this was?

I stake a place amidst the pack;

my arms and legs twitch.

Hours later, I feel lucky

to remember no dreams.

Admitedly, I am not a great fan of dogs. Perhaps it is because many have harassed me as I cycle here and there. Perhaps it is because some of them are not careful as to where the "do their thing" (often the owners are to blame) and that gives me dry heaves. Yuck!!! But I understand that they can be friends as well. I had a favorite and very sweet dog in my teens. Thank you for sharing, Julianza. Love and blessings to you,

Pets are like kids, they all have their own personalities.
