My dog is this crazy goof
and I looked up Goof vs Goon
and what came up reminded
me of five or so years ago
when i first moved here and
fell in love with how the trees waved
their arms when i walked past
and would comfort me with their leaves
if the sun was being a meanie
and the one tree that is still growing
in our front yard which i reversed into

and laugh all you want
but i kissed that tree for two weeks
pleading that it would still grow
because i liked watching the buds grow
and how they would pollute my yard with
love and honesty.
coming back year after year. never failing to be there.
