Paper Trainer’s Lament--By Alice Couch--United States

Paper Trainer’s Lament

My pup is a big photo hound,
so numerous pictures abound.
She’s sweet and petite
will sit at my feet
then potty where no papers are found.

She studied yoga and Buddhism and has a gift for blending the rational approach of the Western mind with the deep spiritual wisdom of the east in her poetry.
