BARKING by Jim Harrison

The moon comes up.
The moon goes down.
This is to inform you
that I didn’t die young.
Age swept past me
but I caught up.
Spring has begun here and each day
brings new birds up from Mexico.
Yesterday I got a call from the outside
world but I said no in thunder.
I was a dog on a short chain
and now there’s no chain.

Anthony Bourdain, BROWN DOG

Your Say

“Brown Dog”

Dustyn DaWyn
20 June 1984 - 02 August 1999

Brown dog ran with me today like many times before,
we walked and talked, as we always have, since 1984.

I can't get past the feeling of knowing that he's there.
The one that had relied on me for love and food and care.
Taken oh so suddenly, in a moment he was gone.
Innocent and trusting, I was his only one.

I don't understand the meaning of his leaving from my hands,
I miss my boy and always will, I'll put it behind if I can.
It's just not fair, to take him where, we cannot be together.
Dustyn DaWyn you surely know, daddy tried to make things better.

I trust he's in a better place, waiting for me there.
Patiently he bides his time, he knows that daddy cares.
I don't feel like a man today, a part of me is gone.
Knocked to my knees, now I must pay, for something I did wrong.

Tears are streaming down my face and there's nothing I can do.
I hurt so bad and selfishly I want you back real soon.
To find a way to get it back the way things used to be.
My wants aren't real and I don't care, he was a part of me.

Brown dog ran with me today but only in my dreams,
I close my eyes and hope to find my boy right next to me.
