(for Michaela)

I wanted to be the first
to leave my paw-prints
on your sill,
to wag my heart at you,
to say, here is my welcoming bark,
the happy sloppy lick of my tongue




I don’t know how appropriate these categories are, but it’s at least a way to index these poems.

Pictures are either incorporated into pages with poems, or have Stars. ** (i.e. click on stars)



Go to NOTES for an occasional explanation of my obscurities.
