Getting routine

One of the cats was missing in the house of my son,
no where to be found, run away in the chaos
of new parenthood.
But of course the baby made up for all loss.
We tried to forget the cat,
we tried it as well as we could.
It is just a cat. But it didn’t feel good.
This morning the cat was found, alive,
inside the couch in the living
where it had been for days
without making a sound.
Slowly things are getting into a certain routine.
Slowly. If all will ever be normal again,
remains very much to be seen. The baby is living day five.
while the cat is sleeping, content.
This is home, new child.
This is your ground.
