IN MEMORY OF KALI 7/26/12 – 11/29/16


Old Yeller, Hooch, iconic dogs die

At least Sparky is resurrected by Michael

Would have given anything to be

A guardian angel for my Kali

That’s the human’s job, right?

Failed what should have been so easy


Why’d the Rat Terrier DNA kick in

When you were so laid back

Wanting to eat and play

Absorbing heat in your spotted skin

And loving it every day


Down the rabbit hole

Never to return

What called you away

What did you need to learn


Can hardly bear it

You left our pack forever

The dogs and I cry

You turned your back on the sun

Lost forever in shadows


Kali, my once Sacred Clown of comic relief

How do I manage overpowering grief
