Fido the Pitbull whimpers when he thinks about his owner.
He wonders where old men go when their bodies stop moving.
He wonders if it’s his fault and that’s why he’s behind bars.
Jailers give him toys, treats, and cuddles.
But no one takes him home.
A couple visit him sometimes.
The man likes him, but he smells fear every time the woman says maybe.
Fido wonders if maybe is a command. He knows many commands!
This time when she says maybe, he twirls.
Once a Fido, now a Maybe, he twirls his way right into her heart.
