Pierre + The Despair

pierre (3)

My name is Pierre

His stuffed scowling little face yapped

From the $5 shelf in the Post Office

Je m’appelle Pierre

Bonjour

You need me today!

 

There is a point

A point of no return

Once crossed

Leads to an abyss

Bottomless

Filled with

Despair

Floating

Forever

In black

 

Pierre jumped into this abyss

Kept me company

Furry paw in mine

As we watched daleks

And dinosaurs

On spaceships

In companionable silence

And tears

A little piece

Of fluffy sweetness

Slowly transmogrifying

Himself

Into me
