you made like to throw the ball
and rexie flew out of his feet goin after it
but you palmed it
and laughed til you coulden breathe when he
stopped cold and looked all around like a doofus for it.
i said, congratulations asshole,
you are smarter than the dog.
you said, baby, you know i love ya,
come gimme some sugar and i’ll show ya.
i did and then waited, lookin all around
but by then, even the dog knew
how full of shit you really were.
