12 million thoughts, maybe more

3 Apr

I bumped into two lines yesterday.
they’re part of a poem called “Joe” by Tim Peeler
and the poem is part of Peeler’s  Outlaw Baseball Poems.
“a wolf ain’t nothing but a dog gone bad,
gone bad and can’t go back.”

damn it.
i wish i never would have read that because
if one day the same thought forms in my mind,
i can’t write it down.
that wold be cheating.

i switch my thought to sand grains.

    I’d say that a dog’s nothing but a wolf gone Uncle Fido, but I guess it’s all down to perception.

      I like that. The cute little puppies still have a chance to lose the whimper and show some teeth.
