Fire Dog


Bo by the fire

This dog would never ride an engine to put out a blaze.

This dog would never sit tall on a seat in a station.

This dog would never keep watch for sparks of danger.

But this dog is a fire dog.

She stretches every night by the fireplace in the den.

She rotates front to back, right to left, for even heating.

She twitches and jerks in her toasty, roasted dreams.

Our Bo is a fire dog.

  1. Love it!
    Especially the line “she twitches and jerks in her toasty, roasted dreams.”

    Look forward to each one you create.
    Thanks,
