Baby

The warmth of your
furry little body
the sweetest of sensations

Freed from your cage
Reborn as my lady
Liberty

Velvet black coat
like a tuxedo
with a white patch

you meow hello
you meow wake up
meow meow meow
feed me

the best alarm clock
snuggling me at a
quarter to five

sleeping at my feet
above my head, on my chest
or next to my bosom
and humming a purring melody

you patiently wait
every morning as I
fight past my morning haze

as my left foot
searches for one slipper
and the right follows next

our noses kiss
to say goodbye
and hello

every day you adjust
into the sweetest
nap time poses

one paw lazily
extends past another
or covers your face

sleep sleep sleep
yawn yawn yawn
and belly rubs

innocent face hunter
you pounce, wail
determination etched
on your face

eyes green like grapes
widen every time
I eat chicken

You’re like Garfield
trapped in a skinny
body

Harder for you
to get adopted
because you have FIV
which is cat HIV

Grateful that I found you
because you’re the perfect
kitty to me.

Hump Day

Jersey jungle drive

Dodging tractor trailershots

Crazy morning rides

 

 

Scar, cat scratched

pink fade

Look down, all I see

is him

Now faithfully his

 

 

Answers deep within

A voice waiting to erupt

Listening to  truth

 

 

 

 

 

Weekend

Freedom, mustang run

Exploring under the sun

Weightless

unbound

air

 

 

Jersey honking wars

Anger contests. blaring

horns

on each avenue

 

 

Whisker wet kisses

Purring perfection

perched paws

Pretty coat, eyes glow
