Cat String




Cat String

String
Oh string
Caught to chest
on current of draft
from the spare bedroom
window where I
blend into the duvet
temper in calm refrain
from all raucous racket
leaving no trace of my impending
claw strike
should the humans crack my
composure and touch even
a fur bare declawed finger tip
to
String
Oh string
Curling a shaft
of sunlight
