Pouring Out

I am crafted like jello

from hot and cold water,

and I look like gems


My dog has taught me

love is lovely and clumsy

and slobbery


And it is okay if you have to

clean up the water because nobody

put the cap on the bottle (again)


I think I cannot exist

without technology or you

because I am scared of bugs


But also I think that

I am scared of being alone

and dry


Thank goodness.

Between you and the dog,

I never will be

My family
