Artichokes like Comets
Walking around, a cat came to me
I asked for her name, and she asked
A cat and I, lost in a secluded
Part of town.
Me, looking for a friend, and the cat
Looking for someone to talk to.
The cat had had an interesting life,
And it made me feel as if I yet
Had lived enough.
What is enough? The cat said.
The cat spoke of places I had never seen,
With people just like me, she said,
Looking for a friend.
The cat’s eyes moved around like blueberries.
Walking around, I found a cat,
Who talked to me with a tenderness
I did not know. Walking around I found
A cat to keep me company.
