let them ring!

you are your kittens/prepare well

count your days on a calendar if you will
my friend has guinea pigs/four have died/four remain
she cares for each with love and equanimity
each will die and not be replaced
they occupy a temporary space in her capacities
graveyards of guinea pigs litter her yard
Death is more than a mystery-it is an end
Every journey home needs to start at the beginning
