Did you know, if a peak cat did have nine lives, it would live for 144 years? Funky, right?

The Last Night

November 9, 2021

Flowers will not wither, skies will not darken as long as I am here. I have never abandoned my post or ran from the stars. 
Even now, I stay. 
This place used to be peaceful. 
But now, prowling in this false light, these pulsating neon heartbeats, skirting around the legs of careless giants, I feel my joints grow stiff. I am no longer young.
Twitching, my nose fills with the artificial stink of fake meat from carts run by greasy vendors. 
Gingerly, I leap onto the wooden stool.
I stand guard, again. 

Nine lives is too long in a changing world.
