Feral

It was recently discovered that Freddy has a terminal illness and I wanted to put this up now, while he’s still with us.

Cat Years

Puddin Pie 2001

The sun warms her bones,

washes sideways

around her stiff age.

on the cedar stump,

loose fur flying

rising on a breeze.

Bits of bark

fall to the dirt

where she rolls on her back.

She has no argument

with dust.
