That Damn Grin

What was I looking for?
I don’t remember
for I got distracted.
My mind wandered onto a new page
as it does quite often
these days.
But look what I found.
Look at that grin.
Not mine,  you fool – hers.
I don’t know what
that does to you
but I know what it does to me
Look at that grin.
Look at those eyes
and that mischievous grin.
Has to belong to a cat.
My Cat, at the time.
I didn’t hold her
near long enough.
But the times I did
still live
in those dusty bins
with memories of those days.
Those times with those people
and that damn grin.
