April 26, Animal Part II

Here is another Animal poem. Best of all? True story. (Not autobiographic, though.) ^_^

Just an Animal

The kitten was tiny and
soaking wet
and mewing faintly.

“It’s just an animal,”
he said,
as if it were really true.
“I don’t want it in my house.”
He slammed the door
authoritatively.

It had to be saved.
She just had to figure out
how.

She left him that night,
taking just one suitcase
and some food for the kitten,
saving both of them.

The kitten grew up to be a regal,
friendly cat, much less
an animal
than the man.
