They pushed the beds together
  -  you keep pulling your dog mind back.
The earth opened a wound
and your dog just wants to drink and drink

Thinking it was menopause
you went for some space
leaving them alone in your house
 your tane and your guest
and they were meant to be singles but
they pushed the beds

I'm riding with you in your car.
You're on your way to where the criminals are
and though it is clear that you would rather
    be talking about the weather
  -  they pushed the beds together

they pushed the beds
and your hurting mess
      of a dog
can't make sense
of its own appetite.
