rescued from a Brooklyn street

a bum leg

scared heart

scooped up

in every way

sleeping in the closet

crying to no one

but I hear him

i will hear him


my reason for climbing

out of bed

every day

twelve years later

fluffy paws coated

leftover chicken

from second breakfast

green eyes full

untold stories

his very own universe
