Dump Dog

 

 by Ed Hammerli

 

As if to take a nap

or a long sleep

 

that would help things

make things better,

 

or maybe thinking

she would wake up

 

somewhere else than

a trash dump beside

 

a shell road looking for

lost gone taken puppies,

 

she decided to curl up

with full nipples

 

and take a death.
