I am I because my little dog knows me.


This is Just Puppy Dog Tails

I have stolen
a photo pup
from another’s
myspace page

which was
probably an
atextual testament
to the owner’s love.

Look not upon
my co-opting ways;
women are made
of fire and ice,

Sweet tongs of
the devil’s pitchfork,
so able
and so divine.

A la
William Carlos Williams, “This is Just to Say”.
