The cat's one green eye arches like a comet

deep into my forehead, searches so furiously

I can only gape back into the sealed tomb

where sight was seized to bestow prophesy

or hyper vigilance. I will never know fully

but the void in its face beseeches me

to confess all things filled with spirit,

the missing eye a star shimmering

out of sight beyond the veils

of limitation, disability, handicap, oddity,

unfathomable, invincible, unrelenting

unlucky, weird, odd, and strange,

how it appears once more under ruse

of  hello, hola, shalom, salam.
