My Familiar: A Halloween Sonnet
written by: Kim Sosin
My black cat is my witches familiar
although my gray cat is my little love
They fight, so I must be the conciliar
or black and gray fur rain down from above.
Gray cat snuggles up next to me at night.
While black cat is out doing … who knows what?
If I need black for a cute little fright
he is right here strutting his flaunting strut.
Until one day I need to cast a spell
Black cat is off chasing a little mouse.
Gray cat and I give him a lusty yell
Black familiar is nowhere in the house.
Even a witch at height of her power
Can’t herd a small black cat for an hour.
