Hamster Ball

I loved you better

before the hospital

when I still thought

you were invincible

 

running up

hills, mountains

swimming into the bottom

of the pond, the ocean

pavement pounded

beneath your gaily feet

towards other dogs and people

until one of them

attacked you

 

today, our fun

is a little different

I put you in

a hamster ball

and roll you down

the street

then quickly, quickly

back towards me
