A Late Night Conversation

    Last night Susan learned her
    Current dog was stranded on the
    Other side of the Boulevard.
    She asked him on the phone if
    He could time the traffic and make
    It across.  He said it was too heavy;
    So I wondered if he was afraid

    Despite being as tough as Susan
    Thought.  I took the phone and told
    Him to stay where he was. I’d come
    And pick him up.  The line was
    Silent for a long while.  I wondered
    If a dog would talk, even in a dream;
    Then heard him say his soft “okay
