I worry about you like you worried about Chloe
the day I never brought her home from the vet;
Would she be happy in Heaven?
Would someone throw the ball for her?
Take her for long walks across the blue pastures
Of the sky?
But I can’t rescue you from adulthood.
All I can do is cheer you from the sidelines
like I used to do in Nationals
Wish you fangs and claws to fight off the trolls,
The sting of the scorpion
A heart as fierce as Balerion, the dragon
From Game of Thrones,
But peaceful and playful as Puff, that magic dragon
