Fat Dogs

Fat dogs in their precious coats waddle through the gate, treading the ice like swimmers in the pool’s deep end

In the clearing, an overcoated man with a fat dog sits on a bench, his hand resting on his cane

His fat dog runs with snow on his nose, his coat askew, his dog grin dripping on the frozen ground


Written in response to Wisconsin’s Poet Laureate Margaret Rozga’s 2/20/20 prompt: two word title, three sections of 20 words each
