  • I entered my bedroom
    Turned on the light
    And noticed a scurry of legs
    In the corner of my eye
    Jet black against wall white
    I opened the window
    Then jumped on to the bed
    Cupped my hand against the surface
    And into the palm she leapt
    I set her safely down
    Onto the sill outside
    She stood, already looking freer
    I'll be back, she thought
    It's fuckin freezing out 'ere.
