From the issue:
My wife said, “I reached across the bed for you.
I reached farther, farther, across the wide bed.
I tried to reach all the way to Africa.”
“Be careful you don’t fall off.
The world is square, you know.”
Just then, a half-grown cat, an older kitten,
a black and white tiger, on the thin side,
hurried across the tile floor of my room.
Appearing from nowhere, like a loving wife,
he must have jumped in through the window.
