The Flood of ’05 (J.T. Wall)

The Flood of ’05


If I could write a poem

About a brown dog

Let’s say

With a black face;


And make it sound

Like I made him up

From a compilation

Of dogs I’ve known

Let’s say

A mixed breed;


It would be a poem

Made up

Of a dog

Made up

Of dogs.


I could name him, too

Spike or Puppy or Gus

Let’s say

And he learned

He could swim

When he was

Six months old.
