Ode to a Pistol

 Photograph by R.A.W. Photography Copyright 2009

 

As a kitten

 she looked like a hyiena,

a soft, playful, unreal

hyiena, who would

eat my hair whenever

I held her

or if I bent over.

Poor eyesight

bizarre sense

of feline humor

 a tortoise shell

of color patches

she growls at stuffed dogs

and swats at her shadow

my little Pistol.
