She comes around, a starving cat.
The smell of chicken on the grill
Became too much for her. I ask
Her if she'd like a beer. She nods.
I bring her one and gesture toward
An awaiting seat. She sits. I know
That she won't speak. I'll bring
Her food. She'll eat it all, and thank
Me only with her eyes before
She slinks away.
