dog dreams

Let me write about your rat-dogs,
the ones you toss out at six-ay-em
to yap-yap-yap the early-walkers
and wake the neighborhood children.

Argh I groan, check the clock, drift
back into pillow-headed dreams, till
your rat-dog holler QUIET! stops me
from making a dream-choice I'd regret.
