absolve me
of all the
stand up acts
that don’t
match with
your own
stripes,

you point
a finger
at the colors
on my coat,
that seem
to offend
your eyes,

i too
never
understood,
the straight lines
of black and white
that so adorn
your hide,

but then
who am I
to judge,
the patterns
on anyone
else’s back,

most are given
without
a choice,
and some
just learn
to adapt
to the tide.
