all that’s left

he went to pick up ashes
of my dog who’s dead
ten days since i mohawked
the fur on his soft head

the IV tube stuck in his arm
on which he laid his chin
i said goodbye my sweet sweet pet
i’ll see you soon again

it sucks that i was lying
i thought he would be fine
his insides tangled dying
his outsides showed no sign

the saddest part is over
it can’t hurt any worse
time will work its magic
only blessing no more curse
