Watching the Dog

I ask the kid
to watch the dog
a couple hours.
"Take her out back
after an hour or so,
let her pee,
play a little frisbee.
Keep her active!"
When I come back,
he tells me they watched
catoons together
on his computer.
"Did you take her out?"
I ask.
"She likes cartoons,"
he says.
The kid is 21.
Sometimes I feel like
I just want to go to sleep
and not wake up.
I lay down on the couch,
turn on the TV,
look for some golf.
