Ode to a Street Dog

I drove on by

your body

emaciated

in the dirt

hairless

tormented

your eye caught mine

as I drove on by

I  began to cry

I knew your final hour was near

no one seemed to care

as I drove on by

I want to love you

to find you

to let you know I care

I  look for you on my return

but you are gone

I drove on by
