now,
wouldn't it be amusing
for someone to be here?

someone here,
to forge poetry out of my folded legs,
glowing a lovely winter pale in the lamplight.

someone here,
to craft metaphors out of my honeycomb hair,
harmonious with the coffee-cream of my carpet.

someone here,
to spin similes out of my nearsighted eyes,
blurring with anxieties for the people i love.

someone here?

but my cat's here.
and i'm here.

and perhaps that is poetry enough
to rage against entire oceans of chaos.

    oh lovely lovely. i love the line "but my cat's here" - it is so simple yet so effective at portraying that odd sort of loneliness <3
