Often Honest

Long Road






an old dog
tail dragging
white fur in the mud
an old dog
ears flopping
shakes off on the rug

an old dog
a young dog
curl up in the cold
a young dog
licks the old dog's
nose to fend off the cold

an old dog
walks down the road
lays down feeling old
a young dog
watches the long road
waits for his friend to come home
