Dogs in Our Lives
A few months ago, Jason Travis and Troy Stains produced a film for The Bitter Southerner about an Atlanta artist named Kyle Brooks. What we discovered was not just a self-described “country talking, long-beard, storytelling man,” but also a genuinely wonderful human being with a ridiculously infectious optimism. So let’s start this Sunday with a poem and a couple of drawings from Kyle about the relationships we have with our four-legged buddies.
we all got dogs
dogs in our lives
somes got one and somes got fives
its best to work hard, and say thanks and please
and its best to get a dog that has no fleas.
my dog is small and shakes a lot
but dont hold it against her, shes all i got
so we all got dogs
dogs all around
terrier, poodle or a long snouted hound
