Sometimes I feel like the family dog

Sitting around the table

Everyone’s speaking English

But to me,

It’s blah-blah-blah-ish

Not sure what you’re saying

Not sure if I care

Because talk

Often doesn’t compare

To the imaginary music in my mind

Much like—I am sure—the meaty bone

The family dog

Patiently awaits

A tastier treat

Than words fluttering through the air…
