we are doing the dash between

this thing and this other

thing. three balls. a new

groundhog under the shed.

the storm of chipmunks

along the road. the words

to find. the documents to

fill. we have so many

goddamned projects. we have

so many things

open. every day we are

solving the problems

of time.

and meanwhile the patient

bush does its turning red.

Your hover is usually okay, Runt.

It makes me feel safe.

Protected, innit.

Cuz yes you’re so big and so strong, ok?

All I’m saying is it’s just

distracting when

I’m dropping a poop.

It’s why I usually go off into the trees.

Or to the back of the yard.

Near the fence.

If you hover during a poop situation

it gives me the panic.

And then I have to pinch it off before it’s ready.

Collies into a whiskey barrel and

roll them down the hill

Stink and Drink

Stink and Drink

we did a stink and drink, which wasn’t so bad. we

got to sleep in a dome with the Bald Man. we sat

around a fire. we cooked food and we ate it. and if

we needed to pee we just peed.  and if we needed to stink

we just stank. sometimes the people thought

there might be bears in the dark. I guarantee you

there were not bears in the dark. because I bark for plenty

of things in the night. I feel like I  would bark for bears. I

feel like bears are something I would bark for.
