DogsFriends (for River & Ramón)

And just like

A sweet apricot

His dog River

Leaps and laps

On couch and

Face loving me

As I enter

Dogs are sweet

Creatures that always

Forgive the trespasses

Befalling them unlike

Us that seem

To carry the

Heavy bags of

Our past into

Our new relationships

Let you and

I check our

Bags at the

Door and start

Something fresh for

Aren’t that we

Simply something new
