POEM: "Hope Is The Mutt"

Hope Is The Mutt

The little things that Emily said –

hope is like the leaves on that thing
feathers are on the bird a word a bone
I'll just say if you were truly of the outside
then you might've explained to me
the vagaries of human commerce
(your hope really is as shabby as a mutt)
goodbye & thanks for the ton of food
I'll think of you occasionally
but if I don’t please know
that it's probably all OK.
