Invitation to Supper

"Dedicated to Little Blackie A beautiful spayed feral cat"

I invited her in for supper

I knew she was hungry.

she wanted to move in,

I already tried that.

It simply did not work out.

 

I need my privacy

she can be a whirlwind

with few boundaries

wild by nature,

she will eat everything in sight.

I resent her.

I do not choose to afford her.

I asked her to leave.

She would not go.

 

One might conjecture

that she thrived and laughed

at my fury

however contained

it might be

my vibration

strong as a thunderstorm

satisfied her.

Finally she left and I slammed the door

behind her

though her hunger

still haunts me.

 

my heart yearns to reach out -

I need my privacy

and this sanctuary

to grow inner peace.

 

Dedicated to Little Blackie

A beautiful spayed feral cat.

She will always be fed.

She has safe shelter.

No animals were hurt in this event.

Extra food and water was left outside for the cat.
