I wrote this for Jude at Occupy LA. She was very interesting. I’m pretty sure her prompt was “kitties” and that she told me a story about how they passed away. But it was loud so I guess we’ll never know.

“For Jude”

One day you will bury
the memory: the color
of my eyes, the feel
of my fur. But Jude, love
moves in circles. Scratch
at the surface
and you’ll find
nothing stays forgotten.
