jamal, what do you see?
is there a ghost watching me?
what do your eyes follow?
tell me what you mean.
jamal, i don’t speak rabbit
i can’t tell if you are lying
can’t a cat just be honest.
i don’t get it…
jamal, please come back to bed
now there is a cold spot next to my head
i promise i’ll keep scratching your back
give me another chance.
jamal, do not be afraid
i see your ears twitch and head raise..
i’ll protect you from the big, big world you fear
little cat, my little dear.
jamal, i prefer your fur to skin
and your silence over awkward conversations
i’ll keep your affection as our secret
you fall asleep on my belly
