where do dogs go
when they leave their tired bodies
far behind on earth

spirits roaming freely
following their noses
homeward bound


you were a good dog
in all the ways that matter
if not the textbook sense

Day 101 – April 13, 2014

you see them on the subway
you hear them on tv
the whispered promises of happiness
that never come to be
I wake to hear a voice
coming through the the airwaves
“First we take Manhattan,
then we take Berlin”

song lyrics from Leonard Cohen’s “First We Take Manhattan”   album “I’m Your Man” (1988)
