Silly dogs!

I watch these Olympians

Hurl themselves into

Dust, water, air,

Scurrying after their favorite toy:



The lure of a KONG about to be thrown

Or pinned in the mouth of your brother

Is simply irresistible.

The KONG that you don’t have is always more enticing

Than the KONG between your paws.


The secret of life is

To wag your tail like a propeller for

The KONG you already have

With one eye cast midair for

The KONG that is yet to arise.
