I can't wait for bedtime
and the prodigal dog's telling
of how 3 days lost in Jawbone
and anxious moments
are not the half of it.
Here's hoping she relives the adventure through the horse
tunnel, or having to tunnel through carcass of horse
to escape the reproachful coyotes' circle of death
dance anecdotes I'd like to live through
second-handedly easier than if
that's what she'll be asking of me
if that's what she wants...
