Dog Poetry

NaPoWriMo 2017 #21

Dogs need to express themselves,

They can only do this
Through their anal glands.

Far From Home

NaPorWriMo 2017 #21

A human carrying a thick suitcase,
Always around like a shadow
Under the direct Tucson sun
Black and yellow under blue skies:
This is the shape of chronic loyalty.

Spread on a spectrum between two coasts
To where I finally found a method
For unpacking the baggage,
The endless boulders and mud
Once thought to be precious gems;

They're now less heavy and ambivalent
So I can make my own home
Over all that confusing scaffolding.

NaPoWriMo 2017 #20

To this pulsating heart,
This putrid gut,
This misshapen soul,
Laid bare to screams
And pointed fingers
on lit torches:
Thank you for your exposure
For being the mirror
And bearing the screams.
