CREATURE

Hulking and ordinarily 
swaggering jocund—
a thick-

witted moose of an
oily black labrador
suddenly—

upon nosing 
the fresh- 
ly bloated brown back-alley

corpse I'd 
failed to notice—recoils

in a flash—momentarily
unsettled,
as to whether 

to double 
back and—subsequently lunge after
the poor vermin

out of blithe  
hunger
or compassion—

though certainly not 
for her lack—
of both.
