day 29

my dog’s nose
is too short
I imagine he
was bred that way
to add humanity

or maybe something
like bling to a ring
or how one would spell
B.O.S.S. in diamonds
on a plastic dixie cup

his face is pushed together
so he sneezes incessently
as though he were
allergic to himself

he cannot see nor smell
past himself, he
pushes his nose
against stone and glass
unsatisfied with distance

his nose really should
be longer, perhaps the
size of a small pencil
or random stinkbug

I would give it a two
out of five, until
an upgrade is
