two tankas

my love will go on
a warm buzzing neon light
should this world roll up
a cheap yellowed shade spinning
coming to its foretold end

eating from a can
at the bottom of a ditch
truly i am not unlucky
i am joined by a feline
she, a priceless companion

My first time at Tankas. The prompts, "Doomsday" and "Unlucky"

I really liked them both, but a nod to the second as I love my cats too. Yes, priceless companions, indeed.

Inspired by evidence, that area strays have found companionship among the homeless.
