Best of Friends

Driving somewhere new, I create
Directions in football play language,
Like Blue Left, Pines Right: Searcy Arkansas

I came to know it so well, especially the stretch
Between Blue Left and Pines Right: Old Railroad Road

Then, etched in my memory of that one day,
Was added Rocky Road Left, when I encountered
The best of friends, doing what all buddies do together:

Kicking rocks, jumping and skipping in joy
Chatting with one another; filled exuberantly
With the deep bonds of friendship manifesting

I don’t know what breed they were, but
I say this: Rocky Road Left points to the
Best of dog friends I have ever witnessed
