Meesha’s Talisman

*For Ada and her cat*

by the fourth day

Meesha’s talisman

was walking in my shoes


in clumsy rhythms

because after all

her Lady is poetry


sweetly measured

precisely phrased

and we learned

Meesha and I

With quiet cooing

And timid caresses

that kindness is lyrical

and trust sings
