My black cat doesn’t know
he will die one day
he doesn’t cling to life
like I do
he leaps from the rooftop
light as air
climbs the tamarind tree
doesn’t dread crossing bridges
or dark alleyways
not the perfidious scorpion
my black cat falls in love
with every cat he meets
he refuses to be shared
by a single love
the way I did.
