The Void of Floyd

Miley Cyrus

has been hospitalized
since Tuesday night

(no not from OD'ing
on twerking while
sticking her tongue out

though it's forgivable
to think that)

due to a severe reaction
to antibiotics.

She tweeted her St. Louis
fans Wednesday morning

since she wouldn't
get to play for them
that night.

But rumor also has it
that she is still in mourning
of the recent death

of her dog Floyd
(reportedly killed
by a coyote).

Her mom Tish Cyrus
bought her a new puppy
named Moonie

but Miley gave it back

because new puppies
can never fully
replace old ones

even after we humans
have done our best to move on

and not all celebrities
regardless of how malleable
they themselves are

think of their pooches
as toys.
