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
A cat is not a conscience; I’m not
What I am saying is
why are they looking?
