for my cat

you, cat, you! madam!
jealous of diurnal beasts
that bask in sunshine!

you! with your tiny
feet that gleefully pierce the
flesh they dance upon!

in these wee hours
as you sneak and spy and all
but steal our last breaths!

you just made me look up diurnal. I hope you're happy.

you should publish a book of poems for key-cats new knee!

i wish i had a lil furry love-love to cuddle when i come home... i was contemplating gold fish, but then the prospect became too depressing for me.
