Tawny on Watch

“Where’s the dog?”
“Did you let her out?”
“She’s going to come in all wet and sandy.”
“Is that her barking?”
“Who is she barking at?”


“She’s just laying in wait on the landing.”
Not like Trenton, Border Collie Lab mix,
Who posted himself, butt on the bench, and
Front shoulders on the rail, loafing,
Front legs crossed like a disinterested


“No wait, she’s barking again.”
“I don’t see anyone.”
“Tawny, do you want to come in?”
“Out of the rain?”


“Good girl.”
“Let’s get you a treat.”
