Literature Text

I miss you
running in your wheel
at absurd hours of the night.
You tried to convince me
that it was a metaphor for the universe.
The choicest morsels of food
that you stored in that wheel,
represented planets and galaxies;
bouncing around,
driven by the pitter-patter
of little paws.

Sometimes, even in sleep,
your feet would go through the motions.
Because the hamster that spins the universe
doesn't stop for anything.
Every creature finds significance.


RIP Teemo. I'll miss you, little guy.
