April 7 What If

What if my siblings had been human,
rather than four-footed and furry,
and I had been inspired to mate
with my own kind? Would I have
a happy brood, like our Madonna
of aptly named Fisher Street,
one of whose five children bears
the same name as my only cat,
and the child smiles
and smiles at my face if he knows
some joyful secret about me?

  1. I like where your mind took you on this one. Some bizarre and wonderful what ifs.
