Well, it’s been an incredible past month or so since I’ve been allowed on the laptop. First off, I’m okay. For all of you that missed it: I jumped out of the car.
Why? One word: BUNNIES. We were going about 25mph down a dirt road, and that’s all I remember except the bunnies…
My master said that I am not allowed to have the window down any more than 3″ from now on. Evidently, jumping out of the car is “bad” and 6″ is “too much” now. He’s been driving with the window locks on since just after he adopted me because I’ve done this before…
And I’m not allowed in the back of a pick-up. I’ve done that, too…
So, you’re starting to see why I have three legs. It’s a vehicular disorder. All of these near-death experiences have got me pondering death a lot lately, and my master’s been talking to me a lot about it, too, because of his grandmother’s passing. It’s a complicated subject, and I’m not even sure what Foucault would say about it… but I wanted to say something…
…so then I wrote a poem.
The Truth About Deathremember, death, you do not win, you are not victorious, you have already been overruled. you are harm full of tear full of hard nights. remember, death, you do not last, you are not permanent, you have already been swallowed. you are pain full of wrong full of dark days. remember, death, you do not defeat, you are not successful, you have already been negated.
Haha! Looks like you and Pippa get about the same amount of computer usage.
We had a dog who jumped out of the window too. He was a labrador so not exactly small. Amazing what gaps you dogs can get through.
Death is a funny thing. Us people think about it when family members die. A few years later we shake ourselves and remember to make the most of life.
I’m as slippery as an otter, and without one of my front legs, I can slink through just about any opening! Thanks for the comment!
Wow! I really like your poem.
hope you won’t try that again,thank you for the poem,just so you know how precious you are to us,stay inside when riding,don’t want to loose you……my sweet 3 legged friend….
