Dogs 2013

DAY AFTER DAY
(2/8/13)


as
the years
surge by
the surprises
occur less
and less
frequently

circumstances
desired or feared
objectively aforethought
are subjectively
simply actions
to be
experienced
in the now

pleasure
pain

health
sickness

hyperactivity
boredom

success
failure

few ecstasies

many disappointments

we become
bored
with the good
and inured
to the bad

in the end
dying
will be
just another
thing
to do
