grow up, they say

grow up, they say
the truth is
at the end of the story
the dog dies

all stories end in death
and anyone who says otherwise is a liar
that's what being a grown up means
what it means to be an adult
everybody dies
you die
every story is death

that's their truth

the other truth is
in the in between
the dog lives
