Dog Sounds in the Night

Standard

I sleep through most things:
thunderstorms, hail, heavy winds,
but not dog noises.

Pearl snores heavily,
Chase is constantly licking,
or they’ll make dream sounds.

Dream and snores are cute
but the licking creeps me out.
“Stop it, Chase,” I say.

He will ignore me
until I turn my light on him –
he curls up to sleep.

His eyes look my way –
“Nothing to see here,” they say.
All’s quiet, for now.
