Toby Eat!

Post by poet-e » Thu Feb 06, 2020 8:22 pm

Think of all the starving
dogs in Africa.

Stares blankly
at me.

“So send
them this.”

Hi E,

I am appreciating these dog dialogues of yours. Often your themes snag some oh-so-familiar occurrence in my life. The countries/cultures have changed over the years but the starving orphans remain. I remember my mother admonishing me to think of them when I refused to eat something, my response was exactly the same as Toby's. Animals and those who have not suffered the slings and arrows of life need help in the empathy department.
