Like a Mouse Behind A Fridge

Posted on

I saw a mouse in the kitchen today.

She thinks I didn’t spot her,

but I know she’s there.


I saw her scurry from the sofa

to the kitchen cupboard

and back again


I saw her follow a breadcrumb trail

leading her somewhere,

she has yet to explore


I saw her follow this trail to the

close space between

the fridge and the wall


it looked warm there


I know I should have done something

told my flat mates,

called pest control,


but I wanted to give her

one night

in her newfound space


because I have been that mouse

looking for my spot

behind the fridge.
