Morning

By 7am my dog was staring, suspicion in his eyes
and pleading
wanting to know if I was going to get fucked up again today
he misses her too, but copes better than me
I told him I’d try, so very hard
to be clean and sober at least for him
and I don’t know if it’s the truth
but he’s the only one left to care, one way or the other
and I owe him my best effort
even as I renounce all care for
myself
