On Fixing

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 disengaged—dulled by domestic dullest—remembered path—back behind walls—dog trained—loves in accord.
