(Poem) Cat Friend by Andrea Nicki

Sick and feverish with the flu
you cough and turn in your bed all night
In your dreams people come and go
though you try to root one firmly in your room
a genie bearing hot tea, orange juice, tylenol, and love
(you shouldn’t have asked for the love)
Your cat curled at your leg never moves an inch
gazes at you watchfully
her silver face seems to float across the air
bringing you the moon

Ah, once again we have an example of the power of unconditional love from an animal to heal… moving poem. Thank you.
