Poem: "Pawprints on the Heart" - The Wordsmith's Forge
The Writing & Other Projects of Elizabeth Barrette
Poem: "Pawprints on the Heart"
Schrodinger's Heroes  is an apocryphal television show about quantum physics and keeping the Earth safe from alternate dimensions.  If you're not familiar with it, you can browse the menu page.  The following poem may make more sense if you have read the descriptions for Melannen's characters and my characters, and browsed the LOL_HEROES post "Good and Evil."  It's a sequel to "The Alpha Vector."  This is posted as part of the Asexy Valentines Fest.

Pawprints on the Heart

It had become a custom
for Alex and Ash
to spend Valentine's Day together.

They slipped away
to the Alpha Vector,
where almost everyone was asexual
and the candy stores were
decorated with white and pink hands
instead of red hearts.

They still said
"Be Mine,"
and people did.

The two women did not notice,
as they walked to the park
to put their handprints on the fence,
that two cats followed them.

Black and white,
they leaned against each other:
good!Schrodinger and evil!Schrodinger,
like shapes of shadow and light,
their tails linked together.

Old enemies
had become allies at last,
hate turned on its edge to love.

In the park,
they left their pawprints,
and if the humans spotted
the pink paint when they came home,
nobody said anything.

For everything,
there is a vector.

You're welcome!

I'm glad you like the poem. There's a bunch more material in the Schrodinger's Heroes project if you look on the menu page.
