today i will share with you
a lesser known chapter in the nativity story,
one of the undiscovered, unsung allegories
that takes place during the advent of the holidays.
this piece takes place in my backyard,
in the present day.
and it came to pass that there were
golden retrievers in the backyards,
grazing in the fields,
keeping watch over their digestion
the mother of the household came unto them
and they did harken not.
