Love and Dogs

TIME WAS

we could conjure

a hearth and

you let your hair

down like a pour

of molten gold

from a jeweller’s

trembling hand

DOG

Flopping on the bed

our friendly white Samoyed

happily blows phlegm

into the air

like a tiny Moby Dick

disgorging precious

ambergris.

    Approval from my friends for the Samoyed poem.

    For the previous, I thought that the French redhead should come back.

      I usually fancy pale-skinned brunettes, but I have to say that some redheads (with hair like “spun gold” and skin like cream) are outstandingly beautiful.
