Claiming territory

a chihuahua and poodle
move across the grounds
claiming new territory
for their home

as we walk towards them
they bark and run
retreating from us
losing ground

they finally slip through a hole
into their yard
a woman opens a door
and they run in

we laugh–
two dogs on a conquering mission
saved from the consequences
of being runaways
