Poem Series: Dogs: Steps along

Steps along,
a car passes,
steps along,
a puddle,
steps along,
a thrown pastry,
steps along,
the road.

Steps along,
similar houses,
steps along,
another car,
steps along,
nothing familiar,
steps along,
the road.

Steps along,
in the distance,
steps along,
a hope dissolves,
steps along,
eyes without tears,
steps along,
the road.

Steps along,
someone stops,
steps along,
not the one,
steps along,
a trepidation,
steps along,
the road.
