Be a service dog for consciousness

shepherding patience into the world.

Lie at your Master’s feet

awaiting Its direction

panting for Its every whim.


Walk with that Power

alert for moments to aid

with your simple Presence

the sick

the hungry

the empty hearts

the lost souls wandering like zombies

life’s endless cul-de-sac.


One lick of your tongue

brightens the whole Universe.


The service dog never whines

never says “This is too much—

I must escape this Master!”



The service dog wags its tail

eager to Love.
