Poem Series: Dogs: Do dogs have music?

Do dogs have music?
Do they understand beat?
Rhythm?
Is there something in barks,
howls,
and squeaks,
that they put together?
Do they anticipate sound?
Is there something in the wind chime’s song,
in the songs of birds,
in the songs on the radio?
Do they hear the pattern of their steps?
Do they notice the jingle of their collars?
Inside their minds,
are they repeating the songs?
Do dogs have music?
