waiting patiently

Last weekend 
I was racing around getting errands done, being beautified 
I espied


Of course 
I wanted to get closer, 
see these pups
get some photos


this guy was busy 'loving' a toy 
I was concentrating on him 
when 
noticed 

him
Oh isnt he sweet 
he's not a puppy, 
no, 
he's an older dog, 
abandoned, 
given up, 
I dont know which 
but 
I was touched by his posture, 
his eyes


I knew I had to leave.  
We live in a tiny apartment 
that doubles as Toonman's office 
we're owned by two cats 
and 
much as I would have loved to adopt this guy
I knew I couldn't 
but
 those eyes haunt me still
