Treat

Ricky Bobby (aka Bubba)

I spend some days talking to my dog who cocks his head
As if he’s trying to understand exactly the words I said

I recite my poems to him, seeking some kind of reaction
Yet the most I ever get is a look of quizzical satisfaction

In my head, I am speaking profound words with a beat
But to him, everything I say sounds like ‘Here’s a treat!’

  2. Ha! I have two puppies that look at me like that. Yes, “treat” “walk” are what they live to hear.
