A new Cat's Eve

There's a painting with a little boat on her bedroom wall
and the cat is happy after all.
Red boat, grandma memories, hidden tragedies, new books and new pillows, new dresses and old smiles, new jokes and new dogs and new bruises and something to hope for once in a blue wall.

Studying life

The cat had wanted it for so long, but she never before dared to make it happen.
Only in her dreams she allowed herself to be a student once more, surrounded by books, passing exams, getting a degree.
Well, what do you know, some dreams do come true after all.
The cat is allowing her self to cry now, tears of joy.

Try again

Dissapointment is like almonds.
You can turn it into liqueur, drink up and pretend you like it.
But deep down you know it's nuts.

Shape shifting

The cat feels the earth moving beneath her feet.
Not in a threatening way, it's just that the scenery is changing.
The borders expand
New faces sign up with the casting director
New habits are starting to form
Old habits die more easily now
some things are good and solid as foundations
but sometimes the cat thinks it's time to change her stripes
Could she?
Would she?
