Pins And Needles: When I Awake...

Miriam McAtee's brief poem expresses an ocean of loss.

I say good morning to my love, but he doesn’t answer
he’s not there...

I say hello to my cat but she only wants
her morning fare…

I look for the kookaburras but the morning has not yet dawned
there is no colour in the sky

So it looks as though there are only the two of us -
my cat and I.
