Puppy Love

Two men now
have called me a puppy
which sounds 
about right.
Did you know
I hurt people
when I hug them?
Jumping up
limbs flailing
an elbow
to the forehead
I don't realize
how sharp
my teeth are.
How much is it
that I'm young
and wet
and needing shelter,
and how much is it
that I'm nice to pet,
and how much is it
that you know
there's a 
good, old dog
in there?
Take the bones 
and let's see
what this is
all about.
