the accommodations made by dracao and cat (but not the dog)

dracoa
is a white ferret

it is not
true
to say that he
and the cat-
named cat –
are friends
but . . .

the dog
that lives across the platform
hates
both of them
so

the friend
of my enemy . . .

well

this could be
home
for a long time

it has already
gone a month
by now

deep underground
in the kharkiv
railway station
accommodations
must
be made

  1. To me, the underground tunnels are scary enough without the fear and uncertainties above! As tough as smiles are these days, this poem brought a smile — it nicely reflects the humanity of the article in The Guardian!
