Poem

                         First, months

of flash, thud, shudder,

but please don't forget

that you have to bark.

No matter what you

Just watch, think and bark,

okay?

nobody near enough to hear me,

if I say a poem or two.

with her ripple-patterns melting as (oh,

 

but she's beautiful) you stare

Poem

To enter here, you have to shrink

and slow down, down. A day

is one tick of the clock, one blink

walking to my beat,

I can only bark.

But barking can't say much,
