cat poem #2

these frightful frigid temps of late
I ponder on our city’s homeless
lighter thoughts have touched on
cats – a kid whose allergies forbid
felines has nonetheless befriended
a large yellow stray gus lives beside
the patio door peers in but with
this cold he lolls snug in a doghouse
a soft pad heats up at three pounds
pressure water cup also electrified
another friend (recently wed) built
a backyard penthouse for sweetie
and sonny fenced space for a lawn
chair when weather improves she
can enjoy her pets while allergic
spouse peers from the patio he’s
a sweetie too though answers to ed
we must tend to human homeless
many are trying but here’s a moment
to honor catlovers’ unmitigated care
