“Like Sleeping Dogs” by Cornelia Hoogland
from the 2017 Poem in Your Pocket Day booklet

.                                cars

nose the neighbour’s house –

their wet snouts pointed

 

with light. It’s the moon’s

doing, milking

everything with such

 

cinematic fill

 

that shadow is

reduced to corners, to

snapping at heels.
