Thank you, Kelly Flanagan, for naming that, for us, for the world, there is significant overlap between the things of this world, even as we go about creating false boundaries.

I admit
I would prefer everything
With clean, clear
Good versus bad
Light versus dark
Life versus death.
Our cat caught a mouse
Last night,
Worried it to death.
We woke to a dead mouse
On the bathroom floor.
It is better
Than a dead mouse
On the pillow.
The cat had done
What she is meant
To do.
We still mourn
The mouse,
Now under
The front bushes.
With cats and mice
There are clean, clear
With us
We mourn
The mouse
The front bushes.
