The Lost

Alone in my room
I feel the Lost
It pushes and pulls me
beneath cold stars
I turn slowly
upon myself
breathing out
translucent puffs
I push them to you
alone in your room
absorb them
in the Lost

My Fierce Kitten

All Hallows' Eve is approaching,
I've heard stories about what happens to Black Kittens...
So you were taken from your mother too soon.
You are  scared of shadows,
but are an expert mouser.
Some days you stretch languidly in my lap,
while others are spent under the porch.
I try to coax you out with cream and a nip,
to little avail.
Your favorite evening perch is just under the porch-gable,
where you wait for that fuzzy bat to flit within your grasp.
Will you murder it in a fit of violence,
or will you hold it tight, whispering in it's ear,
"We who own the night will always be lovers."
Your box and saucer are here always,
But you rarely visit,
My fierce kitten.
