I’ve Got a Lot to Learn


Sophie starts at six
Kneading, purring, then
Whining from the window
Meowing from the doorway
From the bureau, on my chest.
I hear you. You
Know I hear you.
She’s learned what
Buttons to push
To ring my alarm.
I always feed you. You
Know I’ll feed you.
Today’s no different.
When I dare leave the house
To water the garden
She sits by the door
Paws at it and cries.
I haven’t left you. You
Know I haven’t left you.
When I’m not looking,
She sneaks off
To file her report,
Saying I don’t think
She’s learned the lesson.
Send another cat.
