WHEN I AM A DOG
by April Halprin Wayland

When I am a dog,
I will have a major tail

that wags like Goliath
conducting a deafening marching band,

that fans sweltering July
into blustery October,

that is a circus
all by itself.

When I am a dog,
I will have a major tail

that launches a cheeseburger off the table
without anyone noticing.

Poetry Prompt:
Um…well, I usually write some behind-the-scenes cool detail about the poem here.¬† But the truth is, I was looking at Eli’s strong, long tail and suddenly I had a teeny case of tail envy.

Now it’s your turn. What animal or inanimate object do you secretly wish to be?¬† And when you are that animal or thing, what would be the coolest thing you could do?
