Bart – A cat remembered in poetry

Orange Miracle –

Conceived by a  girl cat,

amber eyes and wild,

and a rough sick male

with blood on his nails.

I was midwife to your mother

Big fat orange boy.

You came from nowhere and exist for no reason.

And yet you lie on my couch now,

a six hundred dollar bandage on your leg,

gently patting my cheek

with your soft paw

and watching my eyes.
