old dogs

we’re tired dogs
we seem to want
to go to bed together

at the exact same time

I hit the sack
in the middle of the bed
and say

she doesn’t make a sound
but plops down on a blanket
in the corner

just a tired dog

we are tired old dogs
and around about our bedtime
she gets snappy

while I can’t think of anything
more to say
except to tell her
good night
you tired old dog

we’re a couple
of tired old dogs
