Puppy Love

by Daily Dying

(After Puppy Love 1 & 2 by Janice Liuson-Young)

we call it puppy love

perhaps because we think it

small

less real

or too much

passion and a waste of one's time

and not worthy of the old

dogs lazily watching the passing cars

while swatting away

flies with their tails

and thinking of

puppy days
