Today I will drink coffee at Sugarhouse Coffee,
then walk next door to the pet shelter
to spend time with the kittens and cats.
That is all I will do today. That is all I can do
today. Coffee and cats, coffee and cats.
Until the windows turn into mirrors.
Until the last human has left, and I’m alone
in the quiet, just me and my companion.
One inside the other. Like sound inside a bell.
