Love a Thing

If you love a thing love it madly.
Love it like a dog loves his toy.
Carry it in and out the door
bring it to the rug and rest your
head upon it while you nap
snatch it from the jaws of others
shake and toss it give it
a thrill ride now and then
continue to want and love it 
long after its ears arms legs
have fallen off long after
you’ve pulled out its squeaker
and all of its stuffing even 
when it is nothing more 
than a rag, love it.
Love it love it love it.
And then love it more.
