fiona love

i weep knowing i mistreated you,

fevers and antibiotics later, you rest

cuddled on my right shoulder

purring message,

“hear me. slow down. love.”

delicate tortoise shell fur brushes my cheek.

i bury my nose in your mid-back

breathing in my soul life.

feline fellowship flows.

freedom, to breathe a deeper breath

follows the length of your tail to my diaphragm.

oooooooommmmmm meow.
