Grief as an animal.

borrowed from

Poem a Day therapy from Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides blog
prompt for day 26: write an animal poem.


it’s a different sort of animal
this grief in me
it’s an elephant in this waiting room of me
that others with their magazines
look down hard so as to avoid eye contact
until the elephant becomes
a feral cat
all sharp edges hard to contain
leaving people scrambling
this grief in me

Skimmer's Recap: julie finds grief a curious animal, prone to sneaking up on one from behind.
