No one knows
just when
men were replaced
by dogs on leashes,
so many young women
in heels walking them
to the park
before work,
feeding them
every morning,
leaving them yapping
behind locked doors,
returning after dark,
their little ones
so ecstatic to see
them, so unconditional
in their love.
No one really wonders why
men have disappeared,
or even worries
about where they've gone,
thinking only it seems
a little weird.
