My Pet

Turned for a day

Reflected in the human mirror

My pet is a human

For a day

How should I treat her

Is this really her

My lovely rat

The one who I have told

All my secrets to

She tells them to me

One by one

If she were human

Would I have told her

Such things

Burdening her

With my life?

I have treated her

In a way

I could never treat a fellow

She has had it


With all my “cute pet” love

Bestowed on her

Where will she sleep?

Next to me

Since she can’t fit in

Her cage

Should I kiss her

Good night

Like I did

When she was a rat?

My baby rat

Reflected back

As a rat

For the night
