uncertainty [poem]

maybe cats are attracted to humans who need
to be reminded of their inherent wildness
in a world so determined
to tame everything out of us
but obedience

maybe dogs like to lick away our tears
because they remember being otters once
and the taste reminds them
of the ocean

maybe loud people carry a gene
that makes them more howler monkey than most
and their volume is meant as
both comfort
and warning

maybe I am part spider and these words are
the web I catch your feelings in
so I can feed on our mutual mindfulness
and all that noise
inside your soul

maybe you prefer absolutes and concrete facts
because anything is better than uncertainty
but maybe no one can give you that
