Dogs & Cats

DOGS & CATS

dogs lie asleep
everywhere

three guard the hens and sheep
on a farmstead
by the road to Xirocompi

another lies in the entrance
to the Handicraft Exhibition in Chania
just above the mosaic ramp

as the evening rush hour
clogs the street
motorbikes and pizza-delivery men
darting between spaces
one lies
oblivious to the noise
outside an electrical retailers

cats, on the other hand
either sit patiently
or scamper about
erratically
