Messengers from Cerberus

running rottweiler

Struck apoplectic,

I stared, stunned–

as twin Rottweilers

leapt in unison

with the precision

of circus animals

and burst through

their wooden fence

as if it were a paper hoop.

    You found the perfect picture for this poem. Thanks for sending me a preview of it awhile ago. I wonderfully describes that skipped heartbeat moment.
