one day I came home
to my eldest cat’s ear looking like
it had been cut off and I turned to
the youngest and said 


took a walk to relax.
you’re high.
assumed the cats were eating
get it together.
be practical.
thwarting demons.

at the emergency vet,
I continued to draw her and
I wrote in a notebook;
I am elemental.

keep it together.

“The ear mites”
