They called it "A Dog Patch"

At six years old you take in
info as it comes. I only
recall one other street
besides mine.

It was "Cocker".

The house I lived in, the house my
dad built, it was on
Dalmation Drive.


Come to think, at more than a half century later, we
did have a dog back then.
He was black wavy haired.
Don't remember a name.
He wasn't mine.

I do
remember seeing his
droppings in the garage
and noticing yellow and red
and blue splotches of bright
color in the basic brown.

Another thing I took as it was.


Never saw the colors in
any scat that was afoot
in the neighborhood (dogs
often roamed loose back then).

Figured other dogs ate
different than the one
at my house.

I was right.

They weren't swallowing
broken ballon pieces
pawed from the garbage.

Reminds me of when I worked at the landfill. There were several bears that roamed around at night, scavenging. They pooped plastic grocery sacks.

Now that's funny.
Here I'm wonderin' if any came out with bear scat inside of them.

Now I'm seein' a bear walkin' away from the landfill with the bag draggin' behind him 'cause the entire drawstring ain't cleared the reclamped opening.

Now I'm seein' other bears rollin' on the ground convulsed in stiffled mirth as they view the scene.
