lost kitten

Tonight's artwork Sepia: Stars from kitten chan at, as if you didn't already know I was a fan.

lost kitten

The lampshade gives with elephant eye an empty stare

The delete key finds purpose

I meet my destiny in each tired second

Now. Now. Now.

A scrap of fur with whiskers and paws

become a home for my caged affection

A solace or substitute for safety

taking tiny breaths and steps around my home

And where am I now

why am I waiting for you

when I don’t know who you are

This is how lost I have become

preferring purring fur to faces

Or perhaps just finding my feet again

far from the familiar

In some sense, I say,

(though in the excitement no one understands)

we are all just that

and hoping
