|A pesky varmit in the backyard.|
INTRUDER The dog heard the intruder the instant Its carefully placed paw touched the river rock, Black and white fur shimmering with moonlight, Moist nostrils surveying the night air for hints Of danger, every muscle of its hidden body tense... Poised, ready for retreat. The dog quivered... Ears at attention, breath collecting on glass. Then, at a pre-calculated moment, manicured Claws dig deep into carpet, tiny ebony claws Grip porous fence, the flapping of a miniature Door, the dog's yelping sirened as it gathered speed. Then, silence...you hugged the dog's Safe return and good luck. Dog compliments And rewards were given. The intruder, now a Spring in its step, sly grin on its tiny black lips, Coat shuffling from side to side... Steals into the night. Billy Jack Baxter Tweet
