If you like this poem you should read "Dharma" by Billy Collins
Added by: @ (Doug Brian)
And "Dharma" (which should be up soon, if not already) is essentially the same as Dorothy Parker's "Verse for a Certain Dog"! Since Billy Collins is probably too old to be a reincarnation of Parker, we must assume that it is doggishness that keeps reincarnating.
