a gift to show that you are not yet ready for burial.
Notes On Waiting For The Dog To Find The Perfect Place To Take A Shit While Morning Cuts Through…
Hanif Abdurraqib

I like the idea of having something to show for your living body. Humans, we have so many ways to do this. Dogs have much more limited options. I don’t go to the bathroom and run to show everyone, “LOOK! I’M STILL ALIVE!”

But, I loved playing with this idea of giving what you can to show the people you love that you are still present. I try to do that every day. I just have more tools at my disposal than a dog does. And I’m thankful for that.
