Roxie at Dinner

She stands on two furry legs

Dancing as she moves backwards

Calling for me to give her food

 

Two furry legs support her

Her body a blessing as it works

Holding a fragile frame

 

She is a feline ballerina

That returns to four legs

As I sit the dish in front of her

 

From two legs to four

She had that miniscule minute

Where she was more like me
