walking the dog

almost took a trip through the neighbor's yard at
the end of a leash this morning
their chickens were scattered about
scratching at the dewy lawn and
Stella thought one might make a fine
alternative to the breakfast she hadn't received yet
and loads of entertainment besides
but she trotted on perpendicular to the road
swiping her tongue up across amber muzzle
restrained only by an annoyingly stubborn human
