The Supremacy of Gary

You can hear him from
two yards over.


Barking all day
to drown out his
competitors:
chirping birds
laughing children
that other dog a few
houses down.


That’s Gary,
always getting the
last word.


And then some.


The supremacy of Gary.


Day
and night.


Gary
Gary
Gary…


His name is not really Gary,
of course,
that’s just what I call him.


He looks like a Gary,
whatever that means.


He sounds like a Gary too.


Every Gary I’ve known
has sounded like a real asshole.


An asshole with four legs
and a tail.


An asshole that shits on your lawn
and expects YOU to clean
it up.
