Curling her tail - Mimi Khalvati

Curling her tail
      and staring

not quite sure who
      I was

how many kittens
      I too had had, stalking

past as disdainfully
      as blackness

smallness
      warrants, this

is what she
      left me with:

curvature
      and silence.

Mimi Khalvati (born 1944) Iran (lives in UK)
