last nuzzle

slaughter of worms
beloved pet tied in black plastic
rain
sheets hanging in rain

she nuzzled you on the sterile steel table
wet nose fervent into your nose
eyes drawn
purring
she was your friend for ten years

here comes spring sprouting
out chunks of beige clay misery
delicious blossom shroud
your pretty girl planted in the ground

wendy shaffer
