For Angel and Sirocco
We gave away two kittens today, one female and one male.
One had dark brown ears and bright blue eyes and stripes upon his tale.
One lithe and quick and playful, one thoughtful and sincere,
One’s throat as clean as fallen snow with paws almost as clear.
One’s coat as short as velvet, one’s shiny as sateen;
One’s face a mask of smoky streaks, with sand thrown in between.
We gave away two kittens today, but all we now can feel
Is sadness that we’re missing more than two could e’re have been.
