Persian Cats

she wore her face like a Persian cat
skin sagging down over her jowls
eyes like prisons
holding whatever emotion within.
And she smiled only occasionally
and she talked with a fever
like the best part of life
was communication
discovering what it meant
for the people around her
to love.
