My Step-Dog

brown eyes
intent on me
ears droop
when I leave the house
without him

nobody around
but the cats
he'd herd them
but the one spits
and the other can't see him

in the meantime
he listens for the garage door
always patient
in his impatience
when you throw it I'll go get it

- tob because I'm the step-mom

Love your poem. Dogs are too patient, too loyal, too loving, for any of us to totally understand how they do it.

Infinite patience, infinite love, some day I wanna be that good. Beautiful images, thanks!
