Zorba: Learning to HowlI showed you how to howl. As you sat in our backyard Looking blank (or self-absorbed?) I called Oo-woooo! like a coyote From the bathroom window. You looked up, curious. Your nose rose skyward, then an Oo- Escaped the O your lips had formed. Your muzzle and surprized eyes Snapped back toward me. Did I do that? You looked down, dubious. Head back, again you formed your O. This time You howled loudly (for all the neighbors) Oooooooo-wooooooo-wooooooo! Wooo-woo! Wagging your tail as the wail trailed off. You acted guilty when I called you in. You often spooked the neighbors after that Calling from among the fallen headstones Of the pioneer graveyard in the fog Up the little hill two blocks away. I acted innocent if anyone brought it up.
