"Blessed are the pure in heart:    
 for they shall see God." - Matthew 5:8
 
 
           
    < peter >  
      
 the lost dog        
 (proud he'd made it          
  on his own)        
 imagined the small asian      
 wolves that were his      
 ancestors      
 imagined them as they      
 hunted mastodons in packs        
 as they brought them down          
 in a symphony of howls        
 (in truth, they ate mice)        
         
 then        
 under a dark oak        
 he saw a chewed-up envelope
        
 peter flipped the envelope          
 with his good paw        
 and a note        
 spilled out        
 and he read        
 (something he'd learned          
  from his years on the road)        
 of the second coming of christ        
 and the note said      
 this coming was eminent        
 and that we      
 should all prepare        
         
 following his nose        
 he walked away        
 (the scent of fresh mouse          
  was in the air)        
 though he couldn't help          
 wondering about the note        
 since christ        
 came every day        
 usually by 8 am
