Dog in the Parking Lot

His unbrushed coat is slate-grey

Speckled with paint brush strokes

Of black, brown, and tans

He smiles at me as only dog lovers notice

The grocery store parking lot is all but deserted

Only the bag boys about

Making noise as they collect the metal carts

His emaciated body begs for food

His tail wags as if he sees hope in me

I drive off

Leaving him in the grocery store parking lot


And I never forgive myself
