A Few Thoughts on Cats from Someone Who Doesn’t Have One
The Buttered Toast Theory
The cat just walked across the butter
then jumped down off the table.
They do. It’s true. It’s not just toast –
cats land butter-side down, too.
Its brain is in a clutter
of party noise and bluster
Catnip, milk and cream
Spin yarns of yawning dreams
Those cats are singing
Andrew Lloyd Webber
on the fence again.
A rustle in the undergrowth
In a patch of sunlight
A cat’s shadow rides on air
