down boy


this hot northwest day
a man and his dog
secluded section of the park
clearing overlooking the pond
surrounded by bushes and reeds
just off the well used path
glancing down at ole bob
him whining at the arriving
long legs of a sleek foreign
trophy breed leash in hand of
a magazine model also long
legs under her white marilyn
monroe dress sunglasses both
ignoring us two stunned males
staring imaginations running
wild as her show dog takes interest
in ole bob allowing him a good look
and a sniff her mistress moves closer
grants me the same thrill for less than a
heartbeat then both leave us there
with the same thought in mind
what a pair of bitches
