Poem: here and now



The cat

without a name

walks up the mountain driveway

step for step 

with a fox

black    fiery red

hair on end

night creatures



the cat

whose twin

from the shelter

inseparable

in sleep


pulled out his whiskers


vanished one night

eaten in the forest


- I stretch

catlike

to an old photo

of a boy at two in funny clothes

stroking a Siamese’s



bereft


the cat


now cries

for


colliepuppy 



walks with us

year by year

out of the driveway



into the dark
