Holidailies Prompt:For the next year, I resolve …

 

I Died, Apparently

wp-1476281101088.jpg

 

One year I got a necklace from an acquaintance in a Gift Exchange.

I gave her a bottle of wine and she gave me this charm that was supposed to represent friendship.

 

Two weeks after she gave it to me, my dog died and she went on facebook and posted ” My dear friend’s dog Anita just died.”

 

My dog’s name was Domino.

 

I’m Anita.

 

And then I found out for some mutual friends she had my name and my dog’s name confused all along and when people tried to correct her she actually told them they were wrong- she had issues. Like if you said the sky was blue she’d say it’s not quite blue. It’s more like fain purple.

 

The entire situation was kind of funny, but weird.

 

I took the charm off of the necklace and added it to the charms that Domino used to wear on her collar ( she had at least 14 of them, she got 1 for Christmas every year ) that I keep in my treasure chest.

 

I’ll have to admit, I won’t say that was the worst gift I ever got, but it was the most meaningless- and the strangest.

Winter In My Bones

The cold

the dark

the promise of snow

Winter is in my bones

The warmth

the sun

the heat against my skin

Summer wants to roast my bones

Open the door, let me outside

when the sun doesn’t shine

and the night is quiet

and everyone

is

dreaming.
