Under Our Foot Strikes

Under our

Foot strikes

The ground

Huffs and puffs

Like my Chocolate

Lab after a run

In the woods.

A drop of rain

Splatters

Against the

Ground’s

Throat.

It chokes

And spews

Dust into the

Nostrils of

My dog

Who gasps

For air.

Chest heaving

He looks

For the

Pond.
