[lit-ideas] SUNDAY POEM

"RAISE THE DOG HIGH"
A Sirius Poem


Beauty is still possible.
Yes, still possible,
despite the goings on.
Despite the fact that 
a head lands in your lap
as you sit peacefully 
sipping your coffee
in a sidewalk cafe.
Such a pretty face.
Pretty, yes, 
and completely unscathed 
expect
for the lack of torso
and accompanying limbs,
yes, 
such a pretty face.
