Puppy Fever (My biological clock is going haywire)


i never dared dream
of having a puppy
because with a puppy,
you know,
you have to teach her everything
you don’t know what will happen
ive always rescued adult dogs
from emergency situations
where i had very little say about it
it was either me or euthanization

but im almost 30…
if i had a puppy…
i would have a party
the invitations would say
please welcome the newest member
of my family

people would bring bones and blankets and greenies
and take turns holding my brand new puppy
i would mark the spots on the wall
to show that shes growing.
tail wagging, body wiggling, and all
big paws that she’ll grow into
big ears, bad behavior, getting tall..
