Catpig

by Harry

I drew a cat for him,
at least that’s
what I thought.
He looked at me,
suspicious eyes
full of knowing,
wry smile.


Was I serious?
Yes, I was,
but two year olds
are smart.
“That’s not a cat”, he said,
“it’s a pig”.
He belly-laughed,
snuggled his tiny frame
against my eager warmth;
a moment shared,
intimate trust,
contentment.

I’m glad it looked like a pig.
