Ruth

someone called the board of health
they came and culled the cats
I do not know what happened after that
although it’s safe to assume they were gassed –
was it some smell of feline urine
that bothered the neighbours most?
or the view of a woman
so sublimely cobbled together
that she fed the birds as well. . .
.

Ruth in hebrew may be translated to mean compassion,
although the Talmudic jury is still out on that one
