THE CAT CAME IN 03/29/2012

THE CAT CAME IN

Delicately bouncing on all four paws;

Tail twitching to and fro

Like a snake about to attack

THE CAT CAME IN

Fog rolling about his heels

As he stood in the doorway

Waiting for someone to acknowledge him

THE CAT CAME IN

A bluebird locked in the embrace of his jaw,

Life flying away

From the bird who could soar no more

THE CAT CAME IN

Dropping his prey to the ground

Where it hit with a small thud

Back to the cat who was smiling like a Cheshire

THE CAT CAME IN

With the cold blast of air

And like every morning

The cat came in
