Dogs 2014

ANY NEW YEAR WILL DO
(12/31/14)


2014
with all
of its promise
turned into
a cruel
collection
of months

wounding
and maiming
my psyche
to the point
of capitulation

still
here I am
at the end

limping
a little
more

smiling
a little
less

I pin
a new calendar
to the wall

2015
is looking
pretty good
