Warm Greetings

curled about my neck
a three-colored cat
unassuming in her posturing
a languid paw extends to pat my arm
and stay there at length
there’s a fear in crowds
this reaching and touching
the person you know
might not know
they’re crazy
or you yourself
and all this craziness could be the stretch of an arm
a hand placed on your coat
a warm greeting
