There is something
So joyful
In a cat speaking to you
With confident sass in her voice,
A child exploding in smiles
At seeing herself
For the first time
As a butterfly,
Teenagers excited
Because they can watch you
Transform a table
Into a musical tableau,
And a friend from over twenty years ago
Who is obviously uncomfortable
Sharing any kind of softer feelings,
Nonetheless tell you
She read your blog post
About your husband
And it caused her pain.
