"Impossible beloveds" [rubai]


1.  "Impossible beloveds"

What if unrequited love's the standard script?
yet what numbskull such a pattern would encrypt?
when you doggedly seek impossible beloveds

by what doggone agony you're often gripped!

amidst a nocturnal dag-walking saunter.)

2.  "The dog walkers"

Are the dog walkers   a breed apart?
their astrology's   not hard to chart
a trined dog star bolsters friendliness
in a dog-eat-dog world   have a heart!
