A Boy and His Dog, 2.0 - Jan. 7, 2022

how about a pooch that

fetches unfailingly every time

spins rolls over jumps on command

doesn’t eat get sick or die

with enhanced senses self-cleaning

a programmable personality

doesn’t need a leash


except maybe on the moon

most likely an upgrade


they’re most certainly coming

though I wonder how they’ll mimic

a real dog’s eyes that hide

the depth of a mountain lake

which beckons us to their shores

where we always seem

to slip in and drown
