Black Cat, by Elham Shabani

“Black Cat”

Black cat
staring at me
“If this girl’s gonna bring me bad luck”

Coming across
I saw him
caught a bird
happy it was!

My name is Elham Shabani. I am Iranian and 28 years old. I write poems to know that I still breathe and as the great philosopher said: I think therefore I am.
