Dogs 2014

PRIMARY PURPOSE
(2/12/14)


no matter
the noise

no matter
the movement

no matter
the weather

no matter
the silence

during
the daylight
hours

the canary
always
sings

there
may be
short
breaks

to eat

to drink

to bathe

to poop

but mostly
he sings

then
when the sun
sets

he sleeps

he's
a superstar
without
the drama

to have
life
simplified
to support
a true calling
must be
paradise

I hear
him now
as I attempt
to fix
the toilet
