fear and longing in brooklyn

i started knitting a blanket
but couldn't find the right sized needles
and i fear the blanket will be too small

i watched too many shows about serial killers
and now i can't fall asleep at night
because i see in the darkness
what isn't there

you rested your paw on my foot comforting me
with gentle kisses on my ankle
hoping i might forget my worry

he's been gone too long
and we both miss him
eagerly awaiting his return
so our emotional worlds can be back in order
and you can lick his ears
