Doggone Ace

Richard & Esther Provencher

You’re gone Ace.
Barking no longer necessary
to harass
mail carriers
nor strangers standing

frightfully still while
you munch
pant legs dressed
in brand-name

They'll miss that mouthful
of teeth
your frenetic fury

black and white pooch
wearing one crooked eye.
Yes Ace
doggone they will.

Author Notes:
“I often wondered about all those dogs lurking in driveways then chasing postmen/women who brought desired mail. This is a story of one such dog who left his mark.”
