Returning the gaze.

The good dog Gus and I

stared into each other’s eyes

as I spoke to him about

when I leave, and that I did

not mean to Cheyenne, he

will need to be Bobbie’s best friend.

After saying that, I looked deeper

and realized my human weakness

to believe I needed to speak in words

to this superior being, to explain

what he already understood in

the silence of our eyes.
