We Could Really Use a Miracle



The lovers huddled close
under their shared blanket,
under the shade of an awning
on Michigan avenue in winter.
The big dog they had with them
even wore a coat.  He wagged
his tail and licked the young woman’s
blue cheek as she smiled, laughed,
and moved in closer to her lover.
Their sign read “We could really
use a miracle today.”  The dog wagged
his tail and hopped up on her body.
