What's Broken

The fuel actuator rod
on four wheels on antique psychologist.

The backyard fence,
creating a porous barrier between
my dogs and skunks.

My daughter's tea set,
surviving the tea party with Tommie
On the floor of her bedroom
only to crash during a well-intentioned
cleanup in the bathroom sink.

Every screen between our house and the back yard.
Scratched, ripped, and chewed by anxious,
co-dependent dogs whom I love.
