the old man and the memory of his yellow lab

that old man
bushy and white moustached
plodding with one leg shorter
along east north street
with his broken down
labrador
today i see him
his common place smile
void and mailed-in
replaced with a sad-faced clown-frown
no dog leashed in his right hand
nothing but a ghost
walking quietly beside him
in his sweetest memories

the yellow dog is gone
but still he must walk
alone or not alone
on east north street
what difference does it make?

the old man and the memory of his yellow lab
