cat
oddly balanced
modified
on a February morning
by the serpentine belt
of a neighbors LaSabre
the remainder
of his days will find
his runs tilted
his left ear
going without a scratching
he seems to
sleep deeper and
he seems to
enjoy his meals more
but, that could just
be me I guess
I can hardly function,
hindered by stress
and scheduling
and there he is
passed out in the basket
of clean towels
persevering
in that enviable way
that only a damaged
old alley cat can
