Now He Is Walking With Another Companion by D.N. Simmers

After Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov

So this about a dog
and an old friend and he
the old friend lost
his dog and now
he is walking.
He could not handle the loss of his four footed friend, his dog.
He was lost
and now with a new leash,
has a new lease on life.
And a little furry
tail that wags
and he is off around the
blocks in rain and wind.
He was so sad.
I am not saying getting a new
dog erases all the memories
of his old dog
but there he goes.
And there is almost
a smile on his
wind blown
cheeks.
