Hour 21: Wild Dogs

when I was attacked

by a pack

of wild dogs, roaming

the streets near home


I froze myself shocked

against a door locked

inside my fears

and screaming tears


the nearest to me

licked teeth on my knee

not wild, a run away

a pet, they say


the ones truly wild

were rather mild

for when I screamed

they left the scene


even before, I never

met a dog without shivering

deep in my bones

as if I’d known


wild dogs would attack

in a pack

cowering me small

leaving me all


puddled in fear

at being near

harmless pets.

this lingers yet
