speculations (on the first dog)

Cleaning up odd poems written in the month of September.


the first dog
to reach the moon
ran around
on the floor

between the bright light
and the dark

the earth and
the night

the first dog
to reach the moon
failed
to notice any stars

but wondered
if the time was

yet

to receive
some food

~

the first dog

was not meant
to EVA

snuck aboard
behind an astronaut

raised his head

now known as
orbit boy

he wagged his tail
at perigee

~

first dog
watched the boss
float
to the lunar ground

wuff wuff

support in kind
and

wuff wuff

hurry back
it’s dinner time

~
