I had a dream last night about a moose
except it was maybe a dinosaur
and we were supposed to save it (I think)
but it died and I’m not sure
what that says about
I pride myself on being able to identify dog breeds on the street —
once I couldn’t sleep so
I took a dog breed identifier quiz
at 2:30 am
and I got 20/20.
My dog’s name was Bella,
we had her for 13 years.
My friends used to tell me I looked like a chipmunk
but I think I
grew out of the baby face
I think if I were an animal I would be an alpaca.
This summer I was extending my hand
to a duck to try and win its trust
when it bit me —
or at least when after my shiny ring.
