Satan’s Whiskers

written by: Lorenzo Berardi


A cat
followed you upstairs
from down the street;
I found it at home
in a corner
under the sofa, hissing at me,
refusing to eat.

A cat
was what we both wanted but
were always afraid
to bring in:
(the armchair, the books,
the wallpaper, the piss)
well, now a puss purrs here
and you accuse it
to like me more
to tear us apart
to be a wicked little thing,
a cherub turned Lucifer.
