Strap on this dog
We exit here, no flash
photography please

We will walk down
to where
Lex waits no longer
In her urn

And see if deer
have eaten
The flowers we planted
on top of her

So strap on this
guide dog harness
Lead me in silence
Full of trust

And maybe after
If you ask i will in turn
Lead you to where
a dog is is buried

    It’s spare, but the longing and grief are tangible; that is no easy combination to pull off.

    Thank you. The longing is always there I think… And thank you for reading.
