calling the dog without a voice

early this morning
before the day has settled into itself

with wet grass
and sky fractured and new

out comes the owner
that has lost his voice

and it is another day
another new day
breaking from routines
earlier than usual

and the same greetings
and stick toss
frolic happens

only new
and different

and one owner
today without a voice

as i call
knowing it isn't in the right register
passing the duty on to another man
with the right tone

and on his way goes
the lovely dog with pointy ears
and proud gate

to the owner that today
needs our voices
because he has lost his

for today
