Boy’s Best Friend

Out back he took his rifle to the pups head
aimed deep into the memories
of smiles and laughs while growing together
he saw the mess meant to make him a man
this was the plan all along
some clever ploy by his parents
to make him understand love and death
so when they begin to pass
he can look back and remember
the lesson his parents’ gave him
of his only friend’s memories
splattered across the backyard
