tossed and torn

into  the air

they tossed you

gave way to the chase

and the taste of your blood

they cornered you in your

once safe world

sunk their teeth into your fur

shook you    broke  you apart

breaking we who loved you

along with your neck

your back

your weakened legs

then they both

headed home

with

blood on their muzzles

to their warm kitchen

looking for dinner

in their bowls

while we found and buried you

remaining

blinded still today

from

this endless

river of sorrow and tears

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
