Glamorous   Leave a comment

You know that song from CATS?

The one about the scruffy cat

that was once glamorous?

I feel like that sometimes.

 

I look like that most of the time.

Scruffy.

I say, “It’s a choice.”

But is it?

 

Where once I was lively, I’m tired now.

Down and blue.

Been there a few times….

Where the lively hit the wall.

 

All that I was is laying there,

sprawled out, face down.

Curled up in the gutter

Like a road-killed cat.
