Sunday School



They looked straight ahead
while passing him
that Sunday morning
along the side of the church
where the roof jutted out
just low enough to protect
the sleeping from lying there
blanketed in plastic and trap.

It was the presence
of the dog beside him
that disquieted them
when seated inside
while asking themselves
how a mere pup could put up
with a good-for-nothing
such as that.
