There’s a mouse
up in the ceiling,
or the floor,
if you’re on
the next level–either way,
some cause for concern.
The most common words
spoken here are, “I love you.”
and “Did you feed them?”
Hard to keep cocky
cats out of yard; vegan tries
Shut the door to wars—
snarling, hisses; open up
to licks and kisses.
Speaking of cats and plays, you may enjoy this:
Porridge by the fire–
a quiet moment until
cats come foraging.

“I hate endings. Just detest them. Beginnings are definitely the most exciting, middles are perplexing and endings are a disaster. . . . The temptation towards resolution, towards wrapping up the package, seems to me a terrible trap. Why not be more honest with the moment? The most authentic endings are the ones which are already revolving towards another beginning. That’s genius.” ― Sam Shepard
