LIKE A DOG


like a dog, she heels and takes it

to the boys I knew who watched girls
undress like choosing breakfast

“I don’t think we should go any further”
a whine like a shih tzu
crying for vanilla birthday cake

a red dog bowl
chunky liver is thrown
splashes like it spills like thick
pockets of drool dripping down the jowls

a snarl like
Cerberus’s
middle head in disagreement
with the other ones

and as he licks his lukewarm breakfast
off of her like a toothy cowboy
he realizes what kind of dog he is
