Spot in my heart

Found in a Taco Bell drive through
Plaintive mews from a garbage can
A black and white blotch of fur

You were fearless and calm
And became a member of family
As soon as you sniffed the couch

Years at the same home,
You spread your unique genetics
To kittens all over the neighborhood

But the day we moved
You were frightened
And you ran away

Months later, near midnight
I was walking down the street
Heading back home

Appearing from beneath
A neighbor's porch
You dashed to my side

Was it my voice, or face
You recognized?
I will never know.

But you returned
My friend, Spot
You were home
