Sunday’s #PoetryRewind – Four Legged Fortune – By Dan Leicht @Deeliopunk #Poetry #Poem


a dog scampers across a busy highway and lives
it’s owner, a human, tries to do the same and dies
not meant to trot on all fours
not meant to trot at all
the cars hush for the domesticated
but not for the domestic
hushing almost to a whisper
if not a frail coo
on the other side of the highway is a wall
with no means to getting over it
no means at all
for the dog cannot stand tall enough
bound to four legs
not two
