Meesha’s Talisman

*For Ada and her cat*

by the fourth day

Meesha’s talisman

was walking in my shoes

whispering

in clumsy rhythms

because after all

her Lady is poetry

personified

sweetly measured

precisely phrased

and we learned

Meesha and I

With quiet cooing

And timid caresses

that kindness is lyrical

and trust sings
