Stop Trying to Make ‘Fetch’ Happen, It’s Not Going to Happen

I will throw you away, and maybe some
beast will bring you back, and it will be fun
for a while, my attempts to wrest you from
his jaws, and I’ll hold you for a moment,

and I’ll pretend you’re mine, and I’ll think of
how thrillingly blissful life is, what a
wonderful day this has turned out to be,
and we’ll live perfectly in the moment

for those several consecutive nows
before the beast starts barking, and jumping,
and clawing, and I am forced to throw you
away again, and maybe the beast won’t

bring you back this time.
