A Cat, Observed

(July Poem a Day #2 Theme: That's when I gave him/her my________)

My housemate’s tiny Calico cat

named, unfortunately, after

Trademarked brand of fastening type,

steps between the fruit my assistant

absently placed in the window without

recognizing how often duo of kitty roommates

seek that window in search of uncirculated air.

She walks with grace

that any en pointe prima ballerina

would envy; careful not

to place filthy feline feet

on my food.

That’s when I gave her my praise

via poetry and plan on

buying her a new toy.
