A friend, David Stuart, offered this collaborative poem to passing minstrels for setting to music. This is my interpretation.

dogs

my body is a dog
being walked by my soul
lashed by the fetter of life
together we are one
for now

puppets of meat
piloted by ghosts
atop a blue rock hurtling
through the vacuum
we are many
for now

what is this thing
i think i am
a blip in space and time
i "am"
for now

what is this soul
this "me"
canidae contraband
pedaled with marginal success
it is
for now

traces of my life
my love
my hate
us and
them
then and
now

fade to dust
once the canine dies
that widowed leash
survived
by my soul
a whisper
undiscovered
for now
