Just a Cat, by pd lyons

Just a Cat


No longer

Will morning find you  pondering the flight of birds


You won’t

Trip me in the kitchen, a bandit circling – like I’d forget the milk


Up on the bed

Attack everything  beneath the duvet


Purr with my daughter and the Barbies

Watch  some favorite TV show.


No more my little one

Trust me to carry you like a slip of black velvet still sleeping in my hands


No. No more because

Some ignorant bastard drove like a maniac and thought, oh just a cat

    Sad, sad, sad. So sorry for your loss. About two years back, we adopted two stray cats (both males orange tabbies, recently neutered at our request) which we named MeeMee and LaoLao, two so-independent ones. One of them loves sleeping on Scotty’s lap, and that’s quite enviable. Hope you find fitting replacement soon. Best and good luck. e/s
