Yesterday’s poem…

….well, it didn’t sit quite right with me. How’s this?

Black Cat

Don’t pursue the black cat
that cowers beneath the rose’s thorns,
creeps under the fence festooned
with itch and ivy,
the black cat, a shadow,
that, as daylight fails,
slips between old stumps
and cold stone
to suckle, again,
its mother night.

Don’t follow.
Luck and fate may untwine;
and the witch’s cauldron boils;
yet, adventure warms the night
and dawn is ever nigh,
so, yes, risk the rose’s prick
and the ivy’s rash and scratch
for night must fill one’s lungs
as well as day’s golden genialities.
