Dogs 2018

REGION OF ONE
(9/8/18)

you
would think
that they would
have given
up
by now

trying
to root
me out
of my hole

"come play
with us

have some
FUN!"

they
tell me

"you need
to get out
of your comfort
zone"

which only
means
that they want
me
in theirs

they
would not
make it
in my
"comfort zone"

a few days
would cripple

a few weeks
would kill
them

they could
not
survive
the solitude

they need
other people
to validate
their existence

I do not need
to validate
my existence
at all

I am

I need
only
God

nothing
else
really matters
to me

they
do not
matter
to me

and that
worries
them

the thought
that anyone
could thrive
without
their glorious
presence

makes them
a bit
uncomfortable

let them
play
with that
