APED: "dogs playing poker"

Cassius Coolidge painted dogs playing poker
on trains
in clubs
sometimes cheating

what he told no one
he didn't dare
was that they were painted
from life

it amused the dogs
to be painted
as they really were
and Coolidge made money
selling paintings
as cigar advertisements

he knew
one day they would decide
he knew too much
