Bold as brass

Bare faced, boldly braving the brisk air
we follow the dog’s self-appointed rounds
across the road’s frozen potholes
to frost-encrusted mailboxes
for her daily delivery of missives
only a cynanthrope can read,
following orders as we must
when the family canine is top brass.

Inspired by dVerse and A.Word.A.Day and illustrated with the U.S. Post Office’s unofficial motto.
