It crept slowly, whiskers a-flutter,
on tiny pink feet, delicately fingered.
It’s snub nose, blushed pink in the evening light,
tasting air blooming with violets and lilacs
while its little teardrop ears chased
It looped its tail around a daisy stem
and paused to stare at me,
Shiny black eyes
palpitating with nervous stealthy life.
I wanted to brush the yellow pollen from its wee brow,
stroke behind its satin ears, and dress it in purple tulle.
