Acute Cat Poem

Once more coming onnn
with a florescent hummm
brittle, a flame pushing through flesh,
avidity in small gestures,
each step a crescendo
Lean up on a wall, almost too much
Large cat pawing at the knee, just smile
Smell the earth, coffee, smoke,
take-out, shampoo
Sight floods the body with light
Sharpness pulse of ceiling fan
Tail up, he weaves through ankles,
just smile
He returns much larger than before
In secret, I watch him stalk the room
Someone pops open a coke
Thunder rolls down the walls
breaking into lighter sound, laughter
I am everywhere fur brushing up against…
I feel the room. I lean in silence
