Stumpy Cigarettes

Getting to know him isn’t easy
He’s got a corse soul 
Perhaps he’s taken one too many dog bites 
Perhaps life threw him a curve ball too soon. 

But when he speaks
Everyone values his opinion
He’s got no idea how much weight are behind his words
When he speaks
Everyone values his opinion 
He’s a problem solver
a dog charmer 
got no idea how much weight are behind his words.

I used to think his grumpiness was funny
or worse-
I used to think it was a directed at me. 
Every now and then he’ll open up.
Like a stumpy cigarette hanging off the tips of his tough lips. 
He’ll let it slide.  

he’s actually quite sentimental 
he’s actually quite a fragile soul. 
He does best to protect what’s raw and rare-
from the snakes who tear us away from home.
