Every Day

Every day, just about, you’re there;

On my way to the office - you’re already working;

Cat bowl, duffle bag, old newspaper at your side;

Your cat in the flowers, lurking.

A passer-by brings cat food and a coffee;

You chat her up with a gap-toothed smile;

Out of control 5 o’clock shadow;

One day, I realize I haven’t seen you for a while.

Did I really see you?

    Why did you guys take off and leave us
    To rot in boring old Winnipeg??!?

    Just jokes : )
