POEM TO A CAT

by joannagilmanhyde

The Hawk Queen Bed 4:00pm

Oh Cat, My Cat

with the lemon-green eyes

the colour of Our Sheets

You are here

in this restful room

shaded to the sickness

it supports

I have You curled

at the end of the bed

in the afternoon soliloquy of fever

Oh My Cat

I Love You
