Dog Daze by Jo Regan

Dogs strut
down the street
in designer coats.

Newsreaders skip
over clips
of children drowned in boats.

Canine groomers
polish paws
and pamper muzzles.

Air-brushed politicians
fail to solve
world migration puzzles.

Baristas prepare
luscious puppuccinos
for the mutts.

Media feeds
national propaganda.
Another border shuts.
