Kickass and a time poem.

Kickass, the doorstop dog, reports that the keeper, having napped through the poetry month of April, including April Fools Day, and Arbor Day, offers the following in a flailing attempt to catch up:


The great fanged predator lurks everywhere:

In the parking basement it crouches in the shadows

Along the walk from elevator to vehicle.

It didn’t pounce today.

Hooray! Hooray!

It slinks and sneaks through good and bad,

A game of grand indifference to be had,

It leaves a wake of joy and sad,

As one-way as gravity’s grab.

“Listen up, Time, you insatiable devourer of all,

You juggler of every cell in the universe:

Take it slow with us, we’re not ready to go,

But here’s a thing we’d like you to know:

As you work on your big rearrangement log

Please plan it so we come back as a dog.”
