Through the Crescent
They know the houses where the dogs live.
Every day, pulling at the leads to get to the collie's house,
the black lab's house; the shepherd's house.
Later it's the Jack Russel's house, the spaniel's, the Doberman's
and that little dog behind the gate that barks unseen.
The third dog is blind and deaf.
He doesn't care about where they live
just what scents they've left behind.
