Zero

for Mark Peters

Not just nothing,
Not there’s no answer,
Not it’s nowhere or
Nothing to show for it –

It’s like There’s no past like
The present. It’s
All over with us.
There are no doors…

Oh my god! Like
I wish I had a dog.
Oh my god!
I had a dog but he’s gone.

His name was Zero,
Something for nothing!
You like dog biscuits?
Fill in the blank.
