Three Line Lunch: Red’s Last Day

a yearlong diary in three-line poems by Jeff Rogers, day 197

Red’s Last Day

Morning he came to me in kitchen. “Hey, sweetie boy,” I ruffed his scruff and he smiled.
Afternoon he collapsed, I carried him down to car, Elise sat with him in back, gave herbs.
Quiet natural death at vet’s while we hugged him and talked him through to the park.
