“ The Shadow Of No Cat” —Alexander Hirka

Cat On A Dark Noir Floor

The Shadow Of Your Meow

A meow came yowling along the ground.

This one was very different.
Not at all like the ones both of us have been imagining here and there in the last three days since BB died.
This one was loud. Clear. Real. It startled me. Awake.
