Look outs

Four dogs patiently stood around an inaccessible tree

bravely growing out of its protected hole in the cement sidewalk.

Three people on leash, stood chatting in the evening air,

as three dogs sniffed the low iron fence

while the one eyed canine stood as sentry.

Then the smallest of them made a break for it.

The tree remained indifferent to the breach,

As the panicked human suddenly realized that they were leashed.
