Billy

Billy sits on the floor
to my right
whilst I eat,
looking up at me,
longingly,
putting his chin on my leg in case I haven’t noticed he’s there
until I drop a piece of bacon for him.
Then he moves to a spot
to my left,
looks up at me,
longingly,
puts his chin on my leg
and I realise
dogs must have a theory of mind
because this one is pretending
to be a different dog.
