A symptom of diabetes is uncontrollable thirst.

Divorce Preceeding*

Diabetic, dying,
the blind dog lies

head arched back and around
the base of an overfull bowl

war steps over her - backforth, backforth,
the mouths of minutes like

bedbugs bagging a body
thunderclaps everywhere

her snout and feet twitch
our dreams are all of running

the terrific, wonderful
terrific, awful, thirst,

water never enough
is there

This is very moving Julie. Damn, where you been girl?? Tremendous writing. This strikes a chord with me too, as you know about the animal thing. I like this style. A lot!!
Reviewed by Regis Auffray 8/3/2010
I cannot say that I understand this one but I do appreciate the effect of alliteration and I can sense powerful emotion/s. Love and peace,
