With days and miles and many steps

Walter’s wandering brought changes


No one to watch him as he grew (a collar, grown too tight cuts deep)

Racing cars in search of shelter

or adventure (a third of his tail sacrificed in the process)

Hot summer pavement and discarded glass (each paw scar earned in step)

Freezing winter, gusts on pavement (marking ears already shorn)

Fleas and ticks and itching mites (scratching deep in vain)

Lean times and refuse locked up tight (scuffles over discovered meals)IMAG1920
