Left the cat
out in the cold last night
but she survived

Thank God!

Fiona sick again, in my lap
in the waiting room, in our care
for life, as it should be

Reading Li Po

Lily the cat keeping me company

on another sleepless night

 

The heater hums soundlessly

Lily sits on the sill, staring out into the darkness

Now she follows me everywhere I go

 

Sometimes I catch her

staring up into my face

 

as if she is trying to discern

the depths of my soul
