MAN'S BEST
(2/5/17)

fever

headache

minor bodily
malaise

anonymous
ailments

I feel
like shit

camped out
on the couch

watching
a vet reality
show

a Lab
with a crushed
pelvis

run over
by a car

still wagging
the tail

still licking
hands

while I
whine
reclined

the dog
has me
beat

that's why
he's on TV

and I'm
in front
of it
