A Huge Absence

Lethargy wraps you up
in your focused atempts to
ignore the whole world,
hardly a word escapes you in a day
yet the smell of fish or chicken makes you hyper

no one misses you when you crawl under
impossible places -
but when the realization
drops on us like an ancient chandelier
hunger vaporizes and sleep hides in nooks

As you now lick and chew my soggy vest,
a restless ball of warm fur,
I feel amazed the jigsaw puzzle that
my world is, has finally come to a precarious rest.
