In the Darkness of night

Not a star in sight

I went looking for my cat

Without a flashlight


The sound of my feet

Was not very discreet

I heard a rustle behind me

And my heart skipped a beat


I stopped in my tracks

My heart in my thorax

I cried out, "Here kitty, kitty..."

"Here, Smokestacks..."



Smokestacks' meow was in front of me

I moved toward him but I couldn't see

My kingdom for a flashlight, 20-20 is hindsight

Into the night of dark black light...
