When You Get A Kitten 2010

           When You Get A Kitten

When you get a kitten

Ten

Weeks old,

Red striped ball of fire,

Skip the legs, the arms, the furniture,

Wires bitten through –

(Unusable:

Three

Telephones)

Beheaded flowers.

Splashing, soaking, bathing – yes!

Bathroom, kitchen, sink – They’re his!

(He doesn’t even shake his paws)

Intrusions on the toilet,

He is family

Already.

Nothing

Is taboo or ever will be.
