Menagerie

 

I curled up with the cats,

I played with the dog

in an effort to break through

this thick mental fog.

 

I was chased by a tiger,

I ran with the pack,

I called out your name

but you did not turn back.

 

I went climbing with monkeys,

slithering with snakes,

willing you back with

whatever it takes.

 

With hippos I went

and I wallowed in dirt,

trying to mend all

the cracks and the hurt.

 

I swam with the fish,

I went flying with birds,

I cried and I cried

but me, you never heard.
