KOLOT – Cinquain

By Bonnie Thompson Enes

 

Fred
Tuxedo cat
Sleeps sleeps sleeps
Once younger than I now
Older.

Fred
Tuxedo cat
3:00 am pulls chain above bed
Light turns on I let him
Out.

Fred
Tuxedo cat
When younger waited at end of road
Chased my car home he always
Won.

Fred
Tuxedo cat
20 years old his wrinkled skin
Like a sock without
A foot.

Fred
Tuxedo cat
Crawls onto my lap his head
Nudges my hand ends our
Cinquain.
