Zydeco with His Ball in Mouth
Zydeco barks madly
Adamant in his demand for attention.
I feel an urge to cover my ears with the palms of my hands.
“Zydeco,” I say, “You are a noisy dog –”
A small voice interrupts:
“Some day, you won’t hear his bark anymore.”
I finish my sentence:
“And I love you very much.”
