Prostrate and Beaten

Today is a day full of need. I’ve no time to linger. There’s grass must be cut and hedges trimmed. Lord willing, I’ll also find some time to enjoy a few hours in the kayack. Therefore, today’s first effort needs to be short, but it still needs to be.

Shedding Dog

Wisps of white fur lay
along the baseboards
like fallen spirits,
prostrate and beaten,
surrendered to a second death.
