Ever since I was a kid
dogs have changed the way I walk the streets,
for I will cross and swerve and dodge
to avoid the pants and slobber,
to sidestep any threat of bites,
growls, barks, canine aggression
from prim poodles to fierce pitbulls.

Ever since I was a kid
looking forward to growing in confidence, taller, stronger,
I declare failure in this regard
for dogs have made my journeys longer.
