words on the tongues of canines

words on the tongues of canines
you get licked to death with parts
of speech, dangling participles wet
our cheeks, prepositions loll out
the side of the mouth at the
proposition of a treat, verbs jump
at the leash at the mention of a walk,
but you won’t know how real
it is until they climb up on your
lap and call you by name
