Two More Voices

"Good stick.
Got a good stick.
A real
Getting all the good
Out of this good
That's in
--Joey, cropped a little too close

"The move came at a bad time for me. 
The squirrel that I buried in the leafwallow . . .
And now I'll never see
What was hiding in the loghollow.

They can't have known.
Here, there's just a small lawn."
--Bandit, so soulful

Poems by Roy Blount, Jr., inspired by photographs by Valerie Shaff (not shown here, obviously), from If only you knew how much I smell you: True portraits of dogs (undated, A Bullfinch Press Book)

Dear readers who think that I'm playing favorites on this blog should send in photos of their own dogs. You send 'em; I'll post 'em. --z
