Disturbance On The Inside of The Eyelid- Colin James

I’m with the cat doctor
on this one.
Peripheral pets,
barely discernible outlines,
remain after their deaths
until we get over their passing.
I see them running behind trees
playfully content.
That giant foot
coming my way
an unfortunate miscalculation,
like friendly fire.
