Midnight Dogs

From the collection Bequest

By Sarah SniderPublished 3 years ago 1 min read

The midnight dogs

are talking-

in almost coughs and

soft whistling whines and

always while I'm failing

to fall asleep.

Their deft clicking paws

type their steps

on the pavement,

surprising in me a

primitive fear,

but I am too curious

and unable to turn away.

I wonder if they're

a parliament in the street

discussing full moons

and mortal enemies.

I must be their dark witness

or some kind of wild stenog

because I'm

writing it all down


The only other motion

is my eyes

fixing the direction

of the noise

as if the

sound could be seen.
