Still Has 'Em


Jack is a pied, domino-faced Border
Collie. We talk across his invisible
Fence. He, in dog, me in ... whatever this is.
English? The mazy motions of the air?
Something reins us both as far as we dare.
I stand on the line neither of us miss,
And we wait, kind, doggy, and in the null
extent of it, barking mad, But all in order.

  1. For my son, Willie, and Domino, his cat.

    He gave me the word "domino" from the colorings of his fantastic, friendly cat. Well, they match the Border Collie in our neighborhood, too.
