My neighbor shouted no warning
as his unleashed dogs charged us from behind

My two dogs spun me around by their leads, too late, 
as his dogs pounced

My neighbor stood, passively, 100 yards away
as one of his duo lacerated my dog's eye

My whole, panicked energy poured 
into pulling my dogs out of the violence

My neighbor remains unconcerned, unapologetic
about my dogs' condition, the vet bill, my wrenched back

I wonder, in the aftermath, if one of his dogs was the one 
I helped search for when it ran off
with wings of birds
For You and Not You (a spoken poem)
