Henry’s nose

 

His owner dotes on him

a Beagle with a ‘nose’

for the finer things

that will take him

single-mindedly away from her

infuriatingly, away from her

when he puts the nuzzle to the puzzle

and, well, not quite sprints away

but in the way of connoisseurs the world over

focused and rather determined, as if,

summoned to a higher calling

sort of way

he goes off and does what Henry does

which misses for the most part

what his lady owner would like

as she generously takes time out

to indulge

Henry’s nose

in her otherwise quite busy day.
