Painted Cat By Michael Lee Johnson

Painted Cat
By

Michael Lee Johnson

USA

This painted cat
on my balcony
hangs in this sun,
bleaches out
it’s wooden
survival kit,
cut short-
then rots
chips
paint
cracks
widen in joints,
no infant sparrow wings
nestled in this hole
beneath its neck-
then falls down.
No longer a swinger
in latter days, August wind.
