Jerene´s just moved to a house,
A nice area, that Jeremy bought for her.
¨I must´ve done something right.¨
She sold our house. Has gotten a dog.
We always had 2-5 as the boys
And Erin grew up. Lola, the last
And our favorite, a St. Bernard, died
Five years ago. So, Jerene´s gotten
A dog, a four-month old
St. Bernard--Violet. Puppies are
Rebirths of a sort. Jerene and Violet
Walk mornings, puppy-park
Afternoons. I told Jerene, moments
Ago, you have another baby
To raise. ¨That´s right,¨ she said.
Life is both hopeless, and beautiful.
My heart is heavy, light. Both.
