for the viking…

viking and cat
“viking and his cat” by nan lehnert
(Once upon a time,
— in a cat’s life times two —
there lived a viking,
who set my young heart ablaze,
then pushed my burning carcass out to sea…
this poem remains)

a silk-lined hammock

stretches across 

 a corner of my heart

where you softly rest

suspended in its warmth

while i, the guardian of your dreams

take care in my quiet steps

ever-mindful of your gentle slumber
