When the strainer for the kitchen drain
is in the center of the floor at dawn
when there are q-tips beneath the pillow
or an earring and tie-clip suddenly are gone
When there is water around the fish bowl
when scarves are tucked into the couch
if there are footprints on the counter
and crow outside becomes a squawking grouch
a roll of stamps becomes unraveled
and underneath the chair a bottle cap appears
and soil keeps escaping from a planter
there is no doubt: the cat's been here
- Mar Walker
Yes this is just a little light verse but true. Above sits one of the conspirators.
THE PROMPT: Write a poem featuring the cat family, whether big or small.
