Holding hearts on sticks,
Dogs on leashes,
Hot and tired,
Sitting and lying on mats,
A dog jumps on the person beside me
Asking for relief.
They didn’t get dinner before we came to the vigil…”
“Should they even be here?”‘
But neither should the children in the tents behind the wall.
They should be in homes instead.
Reverend Teal is a minister, chaplain, artist and storyteller. She specializes in the human-animal bond and all its healing aspects.
