DOGS AT SUNRISE by jjméndez

Dogs at Sunrise

Distant barks
Echo down 
Empty streets 
Announcing 
A new sun 
On the rise.

Perhaps
The barks 
Are just 
A litany of
Longings
For wishful
yesterdays
returning.

Or maybe…

They are
Sorrowful 
Adieus
Hoping
To lure
The return 
Of last night’s 
Fading bedroom 
Fake promises 
And lovely lies
all wrapped

in pillow talk…
