Rookie (6-26-1980 / othello)

Roxy Dog - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

as the other three slowly rise
from their individual roosts
around the two bedroom apartment
I make steak and potatoes for all
Sean makes coffee for those who partake
and I drink beer
stimulants do weird things to my mind
and body
even caffeine destroys me
so I avoid the coffee

In between checking the food
I do yoga stretches as my neck hurts
and the dog Roxy
stretches with me
and drinks beer with me too.
