Oliver Kleyer: Where My Home Is

For the dog one floor below

He barks when I pass his door,

because I am not his mistress.

He barks when the pizza guy comes,

because we ordered nothing for him.

He barks when the package deliverer rings,

because he can’t open the door.

But as long as he barks, I know

where my home is.
