waiting


this is Lola
  I met her
 last weekend 
on 
Madison Avenue
 on my way
 to exhale spa
 for my massage

 her person
a lovely South African woman 
was getting a latte
 while
 Lola 
waited
 outside
 the
 coffee shop
 never
 once
 taking her eyes 
off her
 not even 
when 
I knelt
 in front
 of her 
and
 asked
 if 
she 
would
 mind
 if 
I took 
her 
photo  

apparently she didnt

I hope
 your weekend
 is filled
 with 
sunshine
and
 lovely
 fall 
temperatures

  6. What a well-trained dog. Lindy would sit and watch our food, perhaps, but she would certainly take her eyes off us if someone stopped and spoke to her.

  8. So polite of you to ask her permission. Do dogs usually object?
