poetry & things

Stray cat

I always take you in

the way you lie

on your back, exposing underbelly

Twitchy, tricky tale of you

scratching up my legs

you quickly turn

next moment fully purred

You haunt me in the night

hungry on the prowl

whiskers brushing skin

fierce in your growl

You never had to try

so hard, every trick in the book

your forlorn eyes

clawing caught me hooked
