biscuits

frodo and biscuits

biscuits

we crave our biscuits
wrapped with bacon or not
it is a reward
we seek
for being loving
loveable
even if love has eluded
it is why dogs are so satisfying
crave crave crave
to lick your face
to get at the bones inside you
looks of pleading or approval
but always
unconditional obedience
a dog’s love
god’s love
hard to detangle
our need
our craving
seeking always seeking
to be loved
to love
too many lifetimes of longing
without biscuits
