Daily, the companionless cougar slinks past the tabby cat

that like a gargoyle waits fixed on the step for her.

Sharp green almond-shaped moonstones meet round honey ones.

A brief moment of feline solidarity

A muted magnetism

A knowing.

Tabby walks Cougar to the door and 

saunters back to some secret place in the neighborhood.

Cougar chirps to herself, pleased that when she 

rolls her eyes at Tabby, he understands that

she does so with love.
