The alleyway kittens

The kittens ran through the streets together
like small tigers
an image of fear in a jungle.
hopping a puddle
tagging each other with a paw
the furry and flashing animation
of two kittens
completely & hopelessly in love,
dashing through a giants city
fearing noises but drawn by the scents
never certain which way to turn
even after their alleyway has come to an end
when at last they stop to rest,
a meow snagged in their tiny mouths
they felt released from the troubles of those around them
to be together and happy
and to always have the memories of being free.
