Truth Sayers Among Us

Knox, my dog, Murphy

and Sophira, my two cats,

let me know just how they’re feeling.

Though they may lack subtlety

and nuance, they don’t

say one thing and do another. 

A bark, a growl, a welp, a whimper,

a hiss or purr tells me

 how they feel and what they need.

It’s up to me to take it from there.

And you can bet they’ll let me know

if I don’t get their message.
