Poem for Bartleby

*[to be read in cutesy voice]

Bartleby
my lil’ mister

how u know
i need you so?

when i’ve reached
the very bottom

hopeless
with no place to go

out of nowhere
like a flash

you dash upon my chest
and nuzzle

purring
in complete surrender

tender love
to lift me up

somehow
beyond explanation

you can sense
my heart’s distress

such implicit understanding

speaks of secrets
held by stars

from that very first moment
your head popped through that broken screen

i knew you were more than special
how is u gon be dis cute?!

it defies all known convention
how you came to be right here

crashed out like a precious daydream
in my arms so peacefully
