The Supremacy of Gary

You can hear him from
two yards over.

Barking all day
to drown out his
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.

and night.


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.
