    The Little Dog



    The Little Dog

    The Little Dog Upstairs That Never Quits Barking
    has suddenly quit. And in the quiet
    I wait for him to resume, imagining him
    (for I have seen him—his tight white curls,
    his anxious, mashed-in face)


    staring into space, too sorrowful now
    even to cry out, settling
    with a sigh in the leopard armchair,
    facing the wooden indifference of the door.
    Poetry after all is a form of barking.
    Yap, yap, yap,
    someone please come back.
    Take me outside to piddle
    among the flower stalks. Cradle me
    in the arms of your strange tall species,
    grant me a biscuit shaped like a bone.
    . . . And now I, too, fall silent. The clock
    in the kitchen keeps clicking away
    saying Love me to the skillet and saucepans,
    the wire rack of dishes, cans of soup
    and beans, O bowl of sugar, O dispenser of salt.
