Lazy (Part II)

Howdy, folks! Wouldn’t you know it, the dog days of summer are *still* upon us, and as I continue to work on my deadlines, my dog continues to soak up the sun . . .

Lazy (Part II)

By Katie Gilstrap

She slowly saunters
through the yard.
Her mouth is open,
panting hard.
She finds a tree
that casts some shade.
She lies to rest.
Her legs are splayed.
She rolls onto
her bony back.
Her eyes are closed.
Her jaw is slack.
Now happily,
she goes to sleep
with all the summer

at her keep.
