vinnie,     that’s Liza’s staffordshire,     was out
in the yard chasing a robin when some
grizzled grease monkey whipped in off the street
and parked his big damned hawg in the middle
of the driveway.          vinnie never took a
second   —   jumped straightaway on that fellow
and drove him to the ground like he was a
catholic schoolgirl in the habit of deep
obeisance and groveling   .  .  .   that’s when
we all flew out the front screen-door to see
what the tarnation was going on, and
there’s vinnie growling and waggin his tail
over the very still but piss-soaked figure
of her long lost uncle remy rhames-shaw.
