Goodnight: Blood and Fang

The piece shared below spawns from the close to a busy, busy, my dog’s efforts to sleep, and my desire to pen something before slumber banishes me to bed.

The dog,
in her corner
her ears
at a ghost
I fail
to perceive.
Her throat
a deep
in ancestors
that understood
the scholarship
of blood and fang,
then, convinced
her corner
remains hers,
she tucks
her head
under her blanket
and into sleep.
