Some Cats Are Better Teachers

SOPHIE

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,
Self-sustainingly
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.
