Head on Feet

Lying
in the detritus
of the destruction of
a once soft and stylish
couch

Fifteen pounds
of will
love
and unbridled energy

Some call it
companionship
Others call it love

A head
On my feet
A relationship
of equal intensity
need
and choice

Paws padding on tile
The retrieving of beleaguered soft toy
Rescue and training
Equal in determination
By perspective and context

Happy for food and shelter
Happy for the wagging of a tail
In equal measures
a raison d’être

Or a live affair
And love.
