November Poem-a-Day: Day 2

Prompt: “For today’s prompt, write a together again poem. It’s one thing to split up; it’s something else to come back together again. Sometimes getting back together is a good thing; sometimes it’s a bad thing; and sometimes it’s just awkward.”

(I made this about a different kind of love.) :)


Together again

The dance of paws begins
Tap tap tapping on composite floors
Names and numbers, rattling in rapture
Acrobatic leaps, extended tongues
Bodies wriggling with delighted relief
We have returned!
Was it 8 hours, or 8 minutes this time?
It doesn’t even matter one lick
