hungry dog

the hungry dog will do
whatever it must,
plead at first and whimper,
scan the world with too-big eyes,
will pace, will
paw at cabinets,
the hungry dog does not understand,
does not comprehend,
the hungry dog will growl, will
scream,
the hungry dog will lay down,
starving,
and never think to feast
on the remains of a master.
