When she cracked open these doors
Two cats, a bird then a hamster rushed in
Looking for the kids.
She had to leave for some reason,
And she went underground for the season,
Below the water table because this is Miami.
She’s not buried really, but a wild fish rather
Swimming in a fishbowl full of tears.
