Small Cat Evening
on the newly-vacated chair at my desk
or next to me on the two-seater couch,
and finally on the other half of the bed.
On the newly-vacated chair at my desk
my smell, my warmth, my imprinted shape
are a comfort. And, she assumes equal authority.
Or next to me on the two-seater couch
she takes her place as my companion
sharing the time while I watch TV, as couples do.
And finally, on the other half of the bed,
she asserts that she belongs, it's her home too,
she has the right – also, we have the love.
