morning sun slides
into my kitchen
greets the dog
while she eats

I stand back to
monitor her motions

will she keep
this batch of
food down twenty
minutes from now

will I find myself
racing to beat
regurgitated bits

from covering my
clean floor

we wait and see
maybe Sunday will
send peace our way

and I won’t have
to react in a
always on
never off

for her

I wrote this a week ago when Jernee wasn’t feeling too well. Of course (and thankfully), she’s much better now.
