poem let us count the ways - Poem: Let Us Count The Ways

When Spike woos Sweet Pea
how he cavorts and barks!
How extravagant his agonies,
how magnificent his moans.
Shameless, he howls; frenzied,
he flops. His snaggleteeth snap;
his bleary eyes bulge.
Come, he cries, Come
clinch my warty muzzle,
Come gnaw my gnarled ear.
Look at me!
Come sink your enamel,
my bully, my good looks,
into my boundless imperfections.
