Buddy knows first

July 5, 2017

He leaps
from the couch
and growls at the sky.

Then looks back at me –
to say goodbye.

Soon come the winds
straight from hell
all we can do
is bark and yell.

The Earth is an ember
our spirits release,

another failed planet
another failed peace.

Buddy Knows First

December 2, 2010

He leaps from the couch,
growls at the sky

looks back at me
to say goodbye.

Then come winds
and the blast of hell.

All we can do
is bark and yell.

The Earth
soon an ember

our spirits release.

Another failed planet.
Another failed peace.
