He doesn’t know what a metaphor he is

As his paws hit the worn wood floor

In the flat above ours,

How seeing him on the stairs bears

The future the smallest amount closer,

And what a shock it is to my imagining

When the older Greek lady steps down behind him,

Her hand around his leash like Clotho’s thread of fate.
