On private bad thoughts: a blog to read with a grain of salt

An honest to god black lab puppy

Mouthed the glasses off my face

When I leaned down to pet him

First thing this morning

He seemed very proud of himself

As he ran off to investigate them in the bushes

His owner apologized profusely

While I was laughing, then asking

My god, congratulations–what a blessing he is! Do you live around here? Can my dog and I see you again?

She said yes and we exchanged information

I am writing to paint a picture

For my readers of my everyday life and demeaner

My poetry is heavy

But it’s just the vitriol that was implanted when I was very young

Draining from my blood stream
