Darkness, stumbling
Howling, barking, echoing
Discordant cries

Must escape at once
No food, hungry, distressed
Cold, damp, voracious

Low humming, engine?
Silence, chatter, door opens
Someone carries me in

Open cage, people
Reluctance, dangerous place?
Bright lights, daunting, scary

Strangers, smiling faces
Food, affection, toys for me
Blanket, compassion
