Little Chef

Young woman in a wheelchair, a little white dog

reminiscent of my Henry tethered along beside.

A service dog she trained herself to fetch things

for her and do whatever else perhaps open

the blinds in the morning close them at night

do the laundry maybe even the dishes maybe

cook up an omelet now and then or pancakes

flipping them one by one onto a blue plate.

I could picture my Henry doing so oh yes

and wearing a chef’s hat too standing on a

stool by the stove his bright adoring eyes

watching over all.
