Like A Dog by Andrew Shields

Wie ein Hund! (Franz Kafka, Der Prozeß)

like a thief
like a plea, not a challenge

like a thirsty beast
like a stranger

like an impatient spectator
like a board

like a sailor
like a man stung by a bee

like a child
like a clerk


like torture
like a President of a Court

like a jewel
like an ignorant child

like a lawyer
like a reproach

like a litany
like an empty niche

like a mute
like a light
