Strange Encounters

In the evening
at a cold bus-stop
a huge cat
in darkness
drank all my love

I am his fur
I hugged, did not give up

the clouds fell to pieces
as if they’d suffice for earth

ears were cat’s roof
paws were his house

his sorrow and joy
are where nobody lives

and there
I embraced him
with all my arms
