My Suitmate's Cat

By: Abi Sinclair

Published for the 2023 Spring Magazine

has eyes of green and fur of black
He is curious
but not very brave
so when he ventures over to my room
I have to turn my back

I am still
He is liquid shadow

I am quiet
He is investigative presence

I shift
Chair squeaks
The cat is gone

We will do this three more times today
each the same
our ritual
