Wrote this one for you:

“Less” is not “more” when

I see your favourite brand on the shelf, but there’s no reason to buy it

Lizards are sunning themselves on the wall when I get home

No-one leaps on the keyboard when I’m busy

There’s no extra pair of eyes to watch me work

I don’t have to lift you off the clean washing

There are no pawprints below your special window

A dog’s sitting in your favourite spot

You don’t come to me when I’m crying.

I still conjure the broken catch of your purr

feel that bony frame under your smooth coat

know that you weigh less than nothing at all

because all the cats in the world are not you.
