HELP

She won’t
let me out

so I bark
at the coyotes

from behind
the window pane.

I smell them.
They hear me.

Alan C. Fox: “Life takes strange turns. With a friend I recently condensed two short stories which I wrote many years ago into two children’s books. Children’s books! Who’da thunk it? Still, for me, poetry prevails.” (web)
