Ball and dog

Playful rat terrier with ball
prancing triumphantly
invoking her regal dignity;

four-legged, conquering
Kahn entering the wooden
fenced city, blue ball clenched
in death grip by jagged teeth

‘All hail the hero dog!’

Slobber-coated, bell-encasing
rubber sphere lays in the grass
where pretending-truculence
dog has dropped it to subjugate
knotted rope segment instead;
fickle, dog-gone it.

Ball without dog.

I am a poet, writer, and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 then returned to Minnesota in 2018 - hopefully, to stay.

I lived in the most urban of settings, and the rural Midwest. These perspectives impact my writing in very unique ways.
