Today’s Short #Poem 122

Canal water very cold today

Dog with green muck stuck
on long fur shakes with sparkly
eyes and long yellow teeth
concrete grin and black gums
slobber, slobber, waggy tail, yap,
yap, rattle of leash-buckles
and clips, broom, broom, getting
near road now – thinks: here canal,
there road, and just beyond,
the railway line – wave my arm
in the air like a mock combat
practice my kung fu
Don’t tread in dog pooh
