Some of you might remember this story when I listed it as complete for my 2018 weekly writing challenge. It’s one of my dialogue-only stories, though it’s less of a conversation than a cramped room where three voices are vying for authority. Whether you think this is a story or poem in dialogue, I hope you find it an enjoyable, albeit disturbing, read.

2017 has welcomed me with the publication of my first poem ever. It’s a great start to this new year. Thanks to Unbroken Journal for accepting this piece for inclusion in their first issue of 2017.
A reader from one of my Facebook writing groups was touched by my prose poem. This person had lost their dog recently and, though somewhat reluctant to read it, was glad that she did. While my dog actually survived the ordeal that this poem is based on, it took me many years before I could finally write about this heartbreaking night, one of the saddest moments of my life. I hope that those of you who have lost a pet will be moved by this poem, just as I was moved to tears years ago on that cold winter night.
