Can’t shake the dog.

Dog’ll die if I shake it.

But the dog is tiring, actively.

The dog is draped over the shoulder, a live

Weight, better off dead.

Dogged dog, howling at nothing,

Yet, reminding of the presence

Of itself, self-affirming, self-fulfilling.

Life’s cuckoo, able

To replace it with surprising holes.

Forever keeping watch of the howl’s cause.
