Dogs 2017

40 DAYS
(12/18/17)

fasting

praying

resisting

purifications
of the body

the mind

the soul

defeating
all material
desires

we realize
that historical numbers
were often
of the allegorical
variety

but anything
less than years
seems quite beyond
human capacity

making
a fine case
for divinity

a fine
case
for myth

we put
our bibles
down

do the
best
that we can
