Ode to the street dogs of Santiago

Dogs
Dogs
Dogs Dogs Dogs
Everywhere
Big dogs
small dogs
stumpy dogs
tall dogs
skinny dogs
round-as-a-ball dogs
There are dogs everywhere


Pure race
Friendly-faced
law-abiding
they come out of hiding
and step on the scene
only when the light goes green
they step quick and step neat
as they cross the street


Tails wagging all the way
bringing sunshine to each day
enjoying every chase
to the homeless they race
and nestle by their side
filled with warmth and with pride


My day made complete
a german shepherd sitting on my feet
a greying boxer to my right
some fluffy lapdogs having a fight
well-fed and very clean
the happiest dogs I've ever seen
