Fearless Dog

Home from climbing boulders at the beach

Trixie’s bravery has surged

on walks she pulls me along

making her deposits on the brink

between apartment buildings

among the crunchy slippery leaves

on a hillside a hundred feet up

over scrub oaks and madrones

vibrant and all aglow

so when I go to bag her waste

my heart dances down in the wind.
