2005: world citizen

it’s 2005 and i am am home

in the mom zone

cannot understand anyone

who does not marvel

at the flight

of little brown birds


a grey cat arrives

draws circles round us

charming past the neurotic

guardian antics of black anwar

and his ferocious sister; we think

this little sh-cat tells them

she has come for our kid


this dapper assasin will be revealed

as male, will kill four mice his first night

indoors, deliver swift deadly grace

become our house avatar, drool when petted

guard our daughter as she grows

and we will never know

his provenance, breeding, heritage


cat is world citizen.
