Life Blinks

the cat in the sink is sick.

and i, who profess no fear of death,

am scared of loss and shame.

what can i do to save this soul –

where lies the fault and blame?

black cat in sink

he looks at me with big open eyes –

not everything belongs to you,he says, including me.

Listen for the lessons in the blink of My eye –  

and i try and You purr.
