“Cat Lady” by Tami Boehle-Satterfield

The old lady stumbles in
And finds the gray cat,
The old one
That walks like a retired boxer
With a well seasoned swagger,
Dead asleep in the sun.
She wraps her jiggly, jaggly arms
Around
The circle he has made of himself
And rests her head
On his bag of bones,
His old fur coat,
Sweet talking to the thrum of his purr.
