Lamentably, I killed your catThere's also a little Billy Collins in that "It may ease your grief somewhat to know."
while trying just to sting it.
It was crouched,
under our bird feeders
& I fired from some distance with birdshot.
It may ease your grief somewhat to know
that the cat was buried properly with a prayer
and that I'll be glad to get you another
of your choice.
Poets are everywhere!
