The fabulist of familiars

 

By Meg Smith

 

 

The bat shimmies along a tree limb,

and dreams nothing but moths

and a dark stream.

The owl checks its feathers,

and sings nothing but mice.

The snake undrapes its skin

like a lost marriage.

Only the cat comes forward,

in lynx eyes:

“I am your daughter.”
