DISTANT MEMORY

Can enough love

A modicum of time

Many many

Ear scratches

Push the feral kitten

Back far enough

Where the cat

Is free to be

The house cat

Of the year

Seeking a touch

Warmth between

The covers

I have a feral cat

Somewhere in me

Found

Just look

There are so many

Around

Questioning seeking

Looking for a path

Any path

Out of the terror

Life can be

Without an answer

Only questions

Fears broken starts

Dead ends

A growl in the

Background

Constant growl

No one else can hear

We are all different

All the same

We bring memory

With us

Tiny strands

A setup

It seems

The further we walk

The longer our path

Becomes
