False Cognates – Miss Macross

False Cognates

he is a furry mammal he smells like cinnamon french toast he
always looks so warm

but sometimes i think he’s letting go of too much body heat he
looks like he’s using up too much energy trying not to be sad

i have bitter cold bony witch hands and
i can do nothing for him
