Poetry by Luke

Dogged Pursuit

He stands behind her, watching, waiting,

He’s watched her before, same time, same place.

And seen the way the streetlights play across her face.

He stands behind her, watching, waiting.

She moves away; he follows, focus unabating.

In silent pursuit, he quickens his pace.

Moving forward to close the space.

 

So close now, he savours the scent of her hair…

No time to stop, can’t lose the trail

Until his self-appointed task is done.

She’s almost home… she climbs the stair

She strokes his head; he wags his tail.

“In you go boy… did you have a good run?”
