Kissanpentu

(written for Anna's "shipment of male approval" comp)



Action heroes never die, they
just become feline names
with no baggage
or worries
of anything other than love.

I, both master and servant,
can do no wrong.

I exist in worlds
where only basic needs matter—

“kissanpentu suukkoja”

and hurts from deaths
and failures, slip away
with patience
and hope
for a human touch.

“kissanpentu suukkoja”

I am worthy, to
some lives
as we shut out the world
in exchange for
simplicity.
