Poem – Dog People

The people are having dogs
instead of kids
they’re not giving birth to dogs
that’s not what I’m saying
but I’m sure if they could
they would
imagine that ultrasound

it appears 
Ms. Robinson
that you’re having a bitch

“Excuse me!?”

it’s a female dog, miss
you’re pregnant with a dog
I’m not sure what to tell you
or how to prescribe
a therapist surely won’t do the trick

I’ll simply diagnose you
the world’s most basic
