New Year

Your collar, green,
his, blue.

You, so polite,
of course, he bites
(as new things do).

But how much he looks like you—
the curl of his tongue in Snoopy yawn,
stretched out
on the rug

where you lay, it feels,
only moments ago.

*New puppy Cooper is bringing delight to our hearts after the loss of our beloved Labrador retriever, Druke, in November.
