pretty kitty

who knew
i would count you
amongst the cats i lost
in winter? ashamed, regretful
(in no
small part
resentful), i will miss your fluff
and your scratchy love. cold
hearted and heart
broken.
(This poem was inspired by my cat Rocket and by this week's Monday Photo Prompt at my friend Eric Alder's photography blog, Bifocal Univision.)
