his master's choice


hold
cricket
to your ear
listen very hard
that is the sound of being stuck
lonely contagious drinking songs
for the status quo
honesty dropping on all fours 
tumbling in gutters
scrolling down
until
we're
numb

  1. Emulating a dog's feeling can well be an effort to understand them better! Nicely Rene! And good Fibonacci!

  3. "The sound of being stuck" a line that makes you move to see if you're really free.

  4. What a cool photo. I love "honesty dropping on all fours". I am reading right now a wonderful book called The Art of Racing in the Rain - a family story told through the dog's eyes. Quite wonderful.
