Literary Cat

The Thing About Cats

Cats hang out with witches quite a lot;

that’s not it.

The thing about cats is

They’re always looking at you.

Especially when you’re asleep.

Some cats pretend they’re not looking

until you’re not looking.

They’re not to be trusted.

Some cats scowl because they’re wearing

imitation fur. They feel inferior.

Some other cats look at you straight on

so that you can’t drink your drink

or make love

but keep thinking

that cat’s looking at me straight on.

But all cats do the same:

they look at you

and you look out

and in.

A cat is not a conscience; I’m not

saying that.

What I am saying is

why are they looking?
