Dash.

First a world all mine

Eating odours

With astronomers eyes

I could touch horizons

My paws where giant

That crowned my head

Striding puppy legionary

Across forbidden fruits

7 Days 7 nights.

My belly stung

Hung like sacked bricks

From ribs of dried wood

On grating claws

And cracked paws

I searched for earlier delights

In places you only visit

When dead

For to long

Nothing but stanched cud

And chewed granite

Lifting me up

On dark hills

Seeing human speech

I sensed what it meant

So nice you appear.

Day

Trying to show people

Where I had been

All to far

No one could see me

Wanting to say

I no what you mean

When you speak

I just whimpered

Weeping silently

Trotting close

To speeding metal

Wildly Entranced

On coloured hum’s

Drawn to the other side

Needing to walk through

All speeding breeze

 

12 days 13th night

Night became

Lighter than day

When pain took hold

And sleep lasted

For nothing

The cud tasted better at night

I would just swallow

Then be off

Over hill and dale

As sky grew lighter

The hum would drive me down

To the road

Running on cracked blisters

Seeing the coloured hums

Demented and wretched

Sanctuary

I came to a new place

Where all coloured hums collected

Near a big building

I sniffed its walls

And dashed through moving doors

Running through towering racks of food

I wagged my tail

At shouting people

And ran amongst isles

Stopping to wet

Like God making rain

People shouted louder

I was grabbed

From behind

Around my neck

And taken

To a small room

Unable to be still

Needing to be amongst rotten cud

They took me away

In a coloured metal hum

I became conditioned

And forgot how they spoke

All memories erased

Of metal colours

And giant nights

But maybe soon

I'll be off again

With giants paws.
