Broken Cats

My girlfriend 
she only 

broken cats

she’ll find them 
in haunted shelters 
or lost 
crying in dark shadows

they’ve always 
got mental issues

feral crazy 
but wanting the love 
she can give them

and just when I was 
pointing this out to her

just when 
I was going to say 
something sarcastic

about the ones 
that run 
show their fangs 
and refuse training

I realized 
I too was most likely 
another broken cat 
she took in

many full moons ago 
when the alley 
seemed like everything.
