My Shadow - 3rd Poem

My Shadow

My shadow is a grey cat who makes lizards drop their tails
Who makes grown men bring her food and napkins to clean her whiskers

She naps into the afternoon
calling it meditation
Visioning the next service the loving waitron can perform for her

She fluffs up her tail
refining her finery
and steps boldly into the night
Regal and proud as a peacock
in a furry cat suit

She believes she is the center of the Universe

but we know better


Shakura Cathryn /
"Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea." ~Robert A. Heinlein
