Animals carry an essential soul aspect of the human psyche.

When they need to leave, we go in search of this essence within and a new cycle emerges: An Initiation.

It all started with the new sweater

a dog sweater

comment catcher

sleek purple tube

for slinking torso

twisting towards

one smell

then another

and on we go.


A new outfit

another

layer

identity

shaping

a new

out-look

a different idea

about

what it means

to be a dog.


A dream turns

towards

one identity

then another

twisting

into

a new dimension

about

what it means

to be together

and on we go


Where do we go

together

that we can’t go to

alone

cross species side-talk

the gaze

the nudge

the wag

body talk walk

and on we go.

Together

we pair up,

alien entities

no more

we know each

other

like we know

the backside

of a life

neither of us

imagined before.

A dog is

a dog

is a dog,

psyche’s particular personification

that forever

remains faithful

no matter where

the human mind

strays.


I like living with

this dog

this kind of

dream-dog

that lives

with me

in me.

I know her

I get-to-know her

each time

each body

each life

and on we go.
