I Might Call my Cellphone a Friend - June 27, 2022

but not a close one

he has his own residence

nearby and calls

if he needs me


I feed him once a day

leave him his life

and he leaves me mine

my two dogs

are far more trouble

than he is though they offer

a wholly different friendship

in fact after I’ve left

the front door open

he’s more like the cat

that picks his best hiding place

to watch me

search for him

just to see

how much he’s missed
