I won’t be right without you
And I might break without you
I’d rather be poor and happy than rich and alone I’ll write hit songs about you
No matter how we’ll get through
I’ll keep on singing for a living, but I wanna be in love
And I wanna be with you
Reeve and Daniel (shown the other way around – we’re backward … ) – civilly-civiliciously-civilized-civilated- and -unioned. Yes, this photo is from after our civil union. Approaching eleven years with Reeve. I love you, Reeve. 🙂
I found this post via Thought Catalog which lists Button Poetry as its source. We see a man named Neil Hilborn. He “recites a poem about his one true love.”
The poem and performance are described as “heartbreaking” …
… “(and beautiful).”
For “our gal” whether she calls or not, and the man who lent us money when Reeve was out of work. Thank you for having helped us. For Reeve who watered the babies when I traveled so much and I couldn’t provide them with what they needed to survive. For Mamacita with her foggy eyes – rest peacefully sweet girl with half of a tail. For Rocco and Sasha. You make me cry regularly. And for Shirley. L. left you six or more years ago and you were hanging strong. Please do not suffer tonight. If you pass too, please pass peacefully. I’m on my way to lay with you on the floor.
Good Night. I leave the lights on and the door unlocked. My heart is always open.

Police officers in Hawthorne, California, if you haven’t already heard of or seen this situation, handcuff a man who has done nothing but film them from a public sidewalk, which is his constitutional right. He has done what he can and should have done to protect the police from a very calm and pleasant dog by placing his companion animal in his car. After the police have overstepped their authority by handcuffing the man who has, again from what I’ve seen, done absolutely nothing illegal, the dog tries to defend his guardian – as any pooch might – and although the dog has come over and is interacting with the police and his “owner” – who is being, again, completely mishandled by police officers, an officer FIRES at the dog WITH HIS GUN WHILE THE DOG IS IN RETREAT AND DOING NOTHING AGGRESSIVE WHATSOEVER.
Those police officers could have pet that dog and calmed him and coaxed him, frankly.
