A Poem

At last a poem. Not much of one...but something on this page.
The snow is coming. The white storm. The peaceful cold. I will know I am alive. My breath will hang in the air.


PATTY CAKE


When you give a dog a bone,
at first he will love you.
He may dance on cue,sit or

spin. You will be magic. But,
the time will come. It must.
When you give that dog his bone,

he will seem changed. As if
suddenly he knows,you could have
given him meat, instead.

I was coming over to say, "there, there, the words will come again..."...and this !!!! brilliant piece is here.

I love it. The known phrase, actions we all know from our dogs, and the killer last half. What a turn, and so true.

That sense of being desired and consumed and making someone happy--so alluring at first, so deadly in the end.

That is what they call 'a sense of belonging' :)
