Small Dog

		The muse is a small dog nibbling at my 			
		sleeve, hoping to get 
		my attention before
		I unravel 
		completely.

		Oblivion is the owner of that small dog,
		calling him home from the back porch
		of his rent-controlled apartment,
		this time
		to no avail.

		Inspiration is what happens when
		a cold puppy nose comes in contact
		with the arm beneath	
		the frayed edges of my tattered
		sweater.
