October 27th

When the plans
were made public—
the new highway
was to miss the town
by a mile—
the mayor, furious,
began calling and calling
and finally,
put the dogs in the truck
and drove to meet
with the governor.

The truck didn’t make it,
but the mayor sure did,
hitchhiking the last bunch of miles.
First time the governor
ever had a dog,
let alone two,
in his office,
not that it did any good.
