Some Cats Are Better Teachers


I woke and rose
Before you arrived
To remind me how
Important you are.
You don’t have to
Tell me. I know.
You are heaven sent,
Fierce ball of love,
Playfully vicious,
Warm rumble of love.
Disdainfully mine,
All your own.
Slinky reminder
I’m here to serve.
Marked and claimed
By your soft paws
And sharp claws
And slow blink of love.
