Dog Bark/Break the Night / patrick rahming

Dog Bark/Break the Night
Clap-board houses huddled tight
Clap-board echoes barking tune
Barking echoes silvery moon
.
Moon reflects in puddled rain
Rain collects in open drain
Drain becomes a dog’s best choice
A drink to soothe its breaking voice
.
Dog Bark/Break the Night
Clap-board people huddled tight
Clap-board echoes bursting dream
Of leaving dog, clap-board and stream.
