Ending In A Dot



I liked her but her

small yippety dog was

probably more than I can take

fighting over her as we did

with its pencil head eraser

we all in our cocoons no doubt

wondering just who would outlive the other

and outwaiting the passage of time (slow and fast)

the paragraphs dribbled to shorter sentences

each forced into our tinier and more so, rooms

the vacant outside

how many times can you

wash a shirt?
