i dont know how to behave

I don’t know how to behave

It’s the kind of ignorance that creates
A sound, like a blind prehistoric fish
That hums to the passing of an ocean storm.


It has been three days, my cat is missing. I miss her terribly. I miss her cheerful meows greeting me every day the moment I walk in. I miss her admirable gaze on me while I dress up every morning. I miss her bemused stare as I brush my teeth and she sat by the bathroom sink. Every corner of the house reminds me of her. Most of all I am worried she is stuck outside without water as another heat wave is expected for the next few days. I pray that she will saunter out at some point.
