Grief Dog


Our new dog, a chihuahua mini husky mix,
tries to fill, with kisses, the space of all the
dogs before, even some of the people.

I think he could smell the ashes on the
mantle of all those that came before him,
feels the grief in us that ebbs and flows.

I have a sizable collection grown over
a decade. My wife does also. I museum
mine. She keeps hers under lock and key.

He likes me enough, but he loves her more.
He would kiss her for an eternity, if she allowed.
I think they share the same past and grief space.

He kisses like a hurricane, with a force that
knock us both over. Since I’m from Miami, and
a University of Miami grad, we named him ‘Cane.

‘Cane lives to be my wife’s Velcro dog. He
whines when she goes places without him,
jumps and barks happy when she returns.

He doesn’t mind being my lucky mascot on
football days. He wears my old dog’s team
jersey. Until last week they were undefeated.
