Like Pollen To The Wind

A poem about cats and pollen

10/11/20221 min read

Floating white fluffs catch in the wind


The life source of allergy

Around the corner

A cat makes eye contact with another

A dead mouse hanging from its mouth

The threat of

Lost breakfast made worse by the tabby under the fence

And my squeaking bike chain

The suggestion a second predator


The next day I see two cats in a corner window

And that is enough

Like the pollen of yesterday, I float,

My day feels

Lighter already

Balance found

Even if

Only For

An instant
