The eyes have it.

My dog’s eyes


There’s an innocence in my dog’s eyes.

No pretence.

No eyebrows to raise in doubt.

There’s a passion in my dog’s eyes.

No wounded-pet lies to conceal.

No guise to veil.

There’s a trust in my dog’s eyes.

No fear of reprisal.

No cross to bare.

I see an eagerness in my dog’s eyes.

No doubts about his next meal.

No rub that doesn’t bring satisfaction.

I’ve seen these things in too few eyes.

But I remember each time I did.
