Dying Dog

People say
love enlivens the world
can get you in heaven
can breathe life into
your decaying body

I listened
I was easily taught
was made a dream walker

I started believing
I could teach love
spread love
market love

My pet
was the first target-the dog
dying and screaming
asking for help

I approached
taught him love
within minutes

It died
Its pubs too

I learned
love was infectious
made to be infectious.
