My Cat, Arrow
My Cat, Arrow

The innocent look of my kitten
gets lost at the vision
on my bathroom floor
corpses scattered about
like a war
geckos, geckos everywhere
little lives lost

a small mercy that there is no blood
only the reptilian dead
and my cat’s smug look
saying:’I conquered the enemy, dad!’

How can this lovely furball
my innocent child, have such a dark side
to commit the sin of geckocide…?

Based on my cat, Arrow’s fascination with killing geckos… I wish the killing would stop!!!!!

Her name is based on the small arrow on her forehead.
