I saw a county K-9 patrol car

Smash into the end of a tan trainer


Right in front of my eyes.

People emerged from the vehicles.

Running in to see if all was okay…

And running around trying to control the situation…

As if that was possible to do without paying attention and being present….

I waited until the working dog came out of the crumpled car

Holding his Kong in his mouth.

Our eyes met for a moment….

Is this a drill?

No, this is life.
