(hair of the dog)
the hair of the dog that bit me was
amber-colored & honey hued. a most
beautiful dog. a golden retriever.
one of my favorite dogs. he was a
real friendly dog. wagged his tail & licked my
hand. he licked my hand until he bit me.
sunk his teeth right into me. drew blood too.
i was happy just to get out of there
alive & in one piece. who knew that golden
retrievers were so dangerous? who knew
that they could make a person so very
sick? where he bit me has festered. the wound
is oozing pus & is now painful to touch.
