From the book My Dog Likes to Disco

Whenever I eat dairy,
it makes me have to toot.
You might think that sounds scary.
I think it’s kind of cute.

A sip of milk, some butter,
a tiny bit of cheese,
will make my tummy flutterflutter to wave, flap, or toss about.
and cause a “bottom breeze.”

An ice cream cone or custard,
some yogurt or some ghee,
and then that noise you just heard…
That probably was me.

You might think I’m unlucky.
You might think it’s unfair.
But I don’t find it yucky;
it’s just my dairy air.
