Dog Dust

When I say dog dust what do I mean

What does it mean to you

What picture does it present

Do you think of a dog defecating

Evacuating its bowels

Or do you think of a dead dog

That has recently been cremated

And is now dust

A dog might be expecting his master to come home

But why can he not expect his master to come home on a Sunday

Is it because the dog does not have language?

A dog cannot lie

Neither can it be sincere

I can both lie and tell the truth

And I can occasionally be sincere

I am not a dog
