#14 Saved

A brief nod to chocolate

When all else fails


The phone is silent

For almost two days


While opened bills

Remain waiting unpaid


The dog insists she must pee

As cold rain falls harder


There is nowhere to go

Encouraging a purposeless life


How many more chances

Are there left at seventy-two


Dark chocolate with chili

Is reached for to save the day
