The Return - Manushya Puthiran

In the rainy season
cats are short on
food

My lost cats
return
once it starts to pour


There is no remorse
in their walk
over their absence till then
They prowl towards the kitchen
with a sense of ownership

We all need a place
to return
isn’t it?

But
I am tired of always being
the destination for those
returning home
