I Am A Cat

what
does it mean
to be a cat?

kit ears
marble eyes
lazy slits
little pink tongue,

right down
to
little
triangular
nose
snub

patiently observing
kindly human friends,
hopelessly inadept
at gardening;

or
taking naps,
where the sunlight
accidently spilled itself
for no one but
a cat to notice,

as a lazy tail
curled around its
chubby
furry
feline
body –

an exquisite pose, indeed
