As I Am Walked

This day is unsteady,
No earthquake,
Just tremor,
As I am walked
By the pull-pull-dog,

Across the park;
Becoming more
Of a drag,
Heel-scuffed tarmac,
Her strangled,

Collared-coughs,
Announce our parade:
Coming to town:
The Flat-Footed
Quivering Clown
(And his comedy dog).

A smile from a child,
Delighted by the sight,
Of such a performance:
The dog bows,
As I am walked.
