Ode to the Void

Here’s to the little shadow that stares back at us

Black cat, Ink, in cat tree, provided by Olivia Shirk

The little void that screams for chicken

The darkness that curls up to make our day better

The belly that is not a trap but open for pets

Little teeth and claws that only nibble, never harm

Big golden saucers that stare in wonder and awe

Who gets excited and runs into walls

But always gets back up to chase her toy

Here’s to you, our little void

Our precious dumb baby Ink
