The house was on rain,
and there was dead inside.
The last child of the deceased before.
Canine distemper virus has ripped him off.
Like a homeless drifter suicide,
leave with no message.
Two weeks earlier
they were entrusted to a veterinarian
together with other strange dogs.
Out of the city,
attended the funeral of a shepherd.
Thousands of tears spattered down.
To him who did not bleed.
Not until the tears dried up,
and moist again with the next death.
The first was the last female dog.
Mother of all.
Died on her fifth pregnancy.
Together with five babies in her womb.
So that’s how it all happened
in that November.
Began to more realize when all things has gone.
Losing all hope was freedom.
The next unexpected dramas awaits.
The rain is ended,
but the haze lingers on.
