ODE TO MOON HOUND
By: Linda C.
I ran beside the pickup.
I tried to jump in.
The truck zoomed away
so fast that day.
Left behind in the middle of the road.
I ran from side to side.
shivered no where to hide.
A woman stopped and stooped down low
She made kissing sounds and opened her arms.
I crawled on my belly. Peed along the way.
Cars didnt stop or slow their speed.
I had no collar. No ID.
No microchip. Just plain ole me.
The woman hugged and kissed me sweet. She placed ads
And drove the streets.
I jumped and leaped and messed up her bed. I ran circles and howled
And was greatly fed.
She called me Moon and that was okay. I have a new home and my whole life ahead.
When I see a man, I wiggle and weep. Always looking for the one who dumped me on that dangerous street.
Ill never forget. But I try to be sweet. I tilt my head and love her so dear. And this valentines day, I will mess up her bed, run circles and howl.
For she is my Valentine
and I am her pal.
