Stetson

He’s gone now, my stupid dog with his stupid grin and the floppy ears tattooed for racing.   He’s gone now with his elegant stance and his beautiful eyes and his fast, keen wisdom.   He’s gone now and all the thousands of times I let him out in the middle of the night are gone with him.   He’s gone now and I will never fail again to console him during thunderstorms or pick up his mess or ask myself how any dog could be so dignified and funny.   He’s gone now and I wish I could go with him or he return to me and just walk with this stupid, empty leash.   He’s gone now, but we will meet again and again and again, every time I think of him and know he thinks of me, winning every race amidst the clouds. ♥

May you die slowly, fully aware you will not survive in this world or the next, because you served death to life and death is a loser. You are a loser. Take a big bite. Chew it up real good. Now swallow. ♠
