II. Porsche Meets Brown Dog

There she was playing with grown-ups
again feigning interest in their silly books
of Greek holiday photos 
(the sea looked so blue) trapped
in the living room of strangers

when their dog Charlie
lay down at her feet
put his paw on her leg
and rolled over as if to say

I trust you
please stroke me
and suddenly the blue of Santorini 
(in the surf and roll of a brown dog)
made utter and perfect sense.
