a cat died eating poison

— zoe zhai yu

can you wait for me
in front of the gate
as you did before?

poison
for vermin but not the cat
that’s why
mum doesn’t allow me
to keep a pet
when they die, half of you dies with them

they’re on the other side
but there they stood,
the ones we loved
I witness
in this world

no one wants to help
who cares for a carcass
vomit? milk or poison?
better throw up
this dirty world
her eyes straight staring at the bloody sky
hollow and helpless

cat
you shouldn’t die
neither should I
