Making out with my dog in the middle of an awkward conversation

I left my door unlocked
after telling everyone
never to ever come near me again
and that my door wasn’t open
well, it wasn’t,
but neither was it locked
I believe in second chances
and thirds and fourths.

and my little Korean dog
slipped back through it!
and her new owner,
my ex boyfriend,
said, “Listen, I know
you don’t want me
coming around anymore
and I don’t care.
But I don’t think
you’re doing well, either
so, here.
I’m going away for the weekend,
with a woman, and I think
that you should take her.”
and she
jumped in my arms!

My little Korean dog,
my 바두기, remember
when we lived with Shaira?
you never liked her.
I should’ve listened to you
better. Oh, but you stayed put
so well in the basket of
my bicycle, I never went anywhere
without you-
Oh, my big strong man,
my little Korean dog,
Batman, we are going
to have so much fun!

“Yeah, ok. You better
get going then.”

“Sure. I’ll pick her back up
after the weekend.”

“K. Thanks.”

The holidays are so much less hard
with my little Korean dog.
