art school

strolling through her space


a photocopy on her wall

an italian sculpture titled

dog defecating


a massive bronze retriever

curving his body

immortalized forever


she chuckled …

isn’t it hilarious

someone went out of their way

to create this


I’ve always loved her quirkiness

her unusual sense of humor


I had to ask her out


Dog Defecating
