Stray Dog

maybe a lady
full of love already
will fix upon this stray
and trim him
and brush him
and clean him
and love him for today

and devote herself
to tender episodes
and her kind desires

maybe the lady knows
he didn't get this friendly
without being kicked a bit

he will not claw the door
he will not chase a scent

he will love her like a stray, of course
until he's chased away
