Flora and Ulysses

Cynical Flora spends her time reading comics and trying to figure out the complexities behind her parents' divorce. When the neighbour runs over a squirrel with a vacuum cleaner, it luckily escapes death. Flora befriends it and names it Ulysses.

The squirrel's escape results in him gaining powers of some sort, specifically writing poetry. Flora's mother wants to get rid of the squirrel after which they loudly argue and Flora feels completely unloved and hurt. Ulysses writes a poem to Flora, explaining her mother’s real emotions, but the mother kidnaps him before the poem can be read.

Does anyone read the poem or is it lost in the heat of everyone's anger? Does Ulysses manage to bring love into the family in the end?
