Dog behind a glass door

Above is an artwork to inspire poetry.  It shows a dog behind a glass door.  Below is an example of a poem inspired by this artwork.  The poem uses the form Pantoum.

The dog sits behind the panes of glass,
behind a door that he can see through,
and inches from him is another place,
that he can see behind the panes.

Behind a door that he can see through,
the dog sits and sees the warmth,
that he can see behind the panes,
as he sits on cold concrete.

The dog sits and sees the warmth,
yet those inside don’t see the dog,
as he sits on cold concrete,
he seems to them transparent.

Yet those inside don’t see the dog,
their blind to what’s behind the panes,
he seems to them transparent,
the dog sits behind the panes of glass
