Slinking Around

She was like a wet cat
having run around enough to know
that the water in her fur
wasn’t going to come off for a while.
Slinking around the apartment unsure of everything
she slapped at familiar surfaces
trying to regain her bearings
before finally finding the door out
turning the handle and confronting a place she knew.
Her back straightened
her body relaxed
and her confidence returned
once again she knew where she was.
