staredown cat

staredown cat

{04.07.13}

 

through a field of digital crickets,

rained on like Mercury,

and a drum machine’s bloodline

the staredown

between me and that cat across the way

she licks her chops

and has a full array of knives

while I’m stuck with these thumbs

and a keyboard: she hunts,

while I effuse

she hunts, even when confined

to a space, as long as her gaze

can mesmerize.
