On Fixing

June 29, 2020

Some kind of sadness in the skin
of the dog—neck cut crisp
against the leash—
hand—stranger—tugging along
nature false—around the pond
three times—garrote on the bark—
stolen conation—instinct mild
in heart and tooth—senses
by domestic dullest—remembered
path—back behind walls—dog
trained—loves in accord.
