A poem by Francesco Marciuliano from the Book I Could Chew On This And Other Poems By Dogs.

Every time I watch

Lady and the Tramp

I think

“SHE IS HAVING SOME OF YOUR PASTA!”

“QUICK EAT IT ALL! EAT IT ALL NOW!!!”

“GROWL! BARE YOUR TEETH! DO SOMETHING!”

“OH, DON’T GIVE HER THE MEATBALL!
   THERE’S MEAT IN IT!”

“IDIOT!”

But then again

I’m not the romantic type
