just wandering in the dark with my puppy
Late night walking with my puppy,
we are serenaded by those unlucky
enough to be chained or fenced.
If it wasn't for a sliver of moon
the black silence would only be broken
by the music of a car racing
along the far-off highway.
Brakes and tires scream
as the driver is greeted
by the flat mock twinkle
of nearly unseen deer eyes.
It is safer down here
in the dark.
