“Only 5 more days left to go! For today’s prompt I want you to pick an event and make that event the title of your poem.”

Grand Opening

The spay/neuter clinic is bright
and new: gleaming steel kennels
and soothing painted walls,
clean crisp lines of an exam table,
sterile and shiny operating suite.
The culmination of years of
petitioning, pleading, sometimes nagging;
many pennies, raised both
here and there, from everywhere.
At last, for the animals.
