Fur Furniture - Poem by John W. McEwers

I remember when I first decided to get a cat
to replace my family.
I fed him like I fed my guilt
and he grew

and grew

and grew

like ten etceteras

incomplete with elipses

and grew some more

until he became
basically a big chair. And I sat on him.

He's buried out back.
