Vase

 

Smooth porcelain;

white, blue, patterns,

small, light but cold.

Lines, leaves

simple.

Hollow, sphere,

fragile.

CAT

 

Cat is still.

Blank expression, blank everything.

Around it, nothing moves, nothing stirs.

Its long body towers,

above anything else that even tries to conquer it.

This cat as curved but straight,

basic and dead.

Still,

cat is still.
