by KJ Hannah
Mange, perhaps, or other
ailments confound the orange tabby,
Who consorts with ankles beyond
my door. At that threshold,
She exhales all manner of fluffy
That long-haired ginger aptly
meows when apocryphal retorts
Get handed round, disbelieving
claims about kibble and drink.
She insists on being attended
Even after I attempt to indite
an account about neighborhood
Cats, no prose rightly captures
her coarsely proffered posture.
She believes moggies preside
