• Best Valentine Ever

    Finally unleashed the valentine I’ve had in my head for years. Couldn’t not. Oh, my heart.

  • Hand-Me-Done

    I didn’t catch his name. His human didn’t have many teeth in her face.

  • The Mockingbird

    We adopted Lafitte in January. Those PAWS! That tail. She’s a sweet girl and total monster, escape-artist, stealing food off the counter. We named her after a pirate, so it’s our own damn fault.

  • Weltschmerz Doorbuster

    I remember you. I took you in when you didn’t want me to. Shelter from the riders on the storm. But it seems now my tourniquets are deadly. Feel too much you don’t want to feel anything, staunch the wound and the poison too, keep all that sickness inside.

  • Good Night, Sweet Boy

    I consider the calculus, how many steps to the stage, the likelihood of distraction with all the crowd smells and ground noms, what if someone careens into the aisle right on top of him?

  • snail chainmail

    He shines at cutting to the chase. Upfront about openness and great at advice, our hearts have often been in the best worst place, and he never lets me get away with not knowing what I’m really saying.

    Time does things. Knots your bootstraps and puts you to sleep.
