Apology To A Cat

You ran from the right side of the road
To the left, trying to avoid the cars and
Flying gravel.
You were black and white
With a fluffy tail.
And though I am not a “cat person,”
My stomach flipped over when you
Hit the back tire of a passing car.
You fell over in shock,
Balanced perfectly on the yellow line.
And I should have gone back to help.
