Ode to a Pistol

 Photograph by R.A.W. Photography Copyright 2009

Hyena kitten

soft, playful, unreal

hyena, who would

eat my hair whenever

I held her.

Poor eyesight

bizarre sense

of feline humor

a tortoise shell

of color patches

growling at stuffed dogs

and swatting her shadow

my little Pistol.
