16th February 2018

on my winter-white back
the welts of Lupercalia

a cardboard tube
with a nameplate on the top
my dog's ashes.
Odd, how such a big slice of my life
can be reduced to memories and dust
I almost want to keep them
but he wouldn't have been happy
shut in a tiny box.
Run free, my spirit dog.
