Dogs 2015

THANKSGETTING*
(11/26/15)


they've
accomplished
their task

completely subverting
one holiday
for another

we don't
want to think
about Christmas
today

just family

a shared
meal

but
a big payday
looms

we are
reminded
at every turn
that gifts
must be
purchased

bigger
and better
than last
year

we just
want
some pie

some coffee

some conversation

nothing
that needs
to be wrapped

we'll check
our bank accounts

our credit card
balances

tomorrow

thank you
very much

assholes


(*thanks, Verizon)
