Black Cat

Black Cat (18-025Z)

White ring necked cat
Black and stiff
Lifeless at side of road
For three days

Tonight it is gone
Perhaps an eagle
Carried it away
Bones scattered in nest

One swift moment
Life departs
Coldness of death
Sinks to its bone

About the Author:  Brian Bucks lives on a small horse ranch in Western Nebraska and is a husband, father, electrical engineer, and poet. (18-025Z)
