Portrait of Girl with Shih Tzu

such a plain girl,  sitting in the shade, the market windows reflecting the July afternoon behind you, with a small salad and a vegan cupcake, and at your feet the brightest little dog with her Summer Cut, her coat the color of storm clouds, her eyes dark little jewels - you sit, straight, staring into the middle distance, one freckled arm at your side, the other holds your book open as the taut leash grows tauter, she wants you to Hurry Up, she has no time for bookish hot afternoons.
