Lucky Thing

Lucky Thing

It was a lucky thing
I looked outside while on the phone
yesterday.

The dog was on the lawn
halfway gone
to the neighbors.

I called him back
frantically.
Tried to sound excited
at seeing him.

I was excited.

Fear
will do that to you.

He came running.
I grabbed him.
Yes, a lucky thing.

Now he's chewing
on my slipper.

Lucky.
