Sweet Arrangement . . .

LITTLE DOGS RHAPSODY IN THE NIGHT
she puts her cheek against mine
and makes small, expressive sounds.
And when I'm awake, or awake enough

she turns upside down, her four paws
in the air
and her eyes dark and fervent.

"Tell me you love me, " she says.

"Tell me again."

Could there be a sweeter arrangement?
Over and over
she gets to ask.
I get to tell.
