The cat

And the Cat Remained

Cat laden
I sit. Monitor light
casting flickering shadows
data echoes
dancing in the hall
as the freeway
with tire treads
beyond the wall.

No yowling
just now, only
the occasional purr
or claw claiming dominion
over this
section of thigh.
No snoring
or sighs
or bedclothes rustling

Just the night
and the cat.

    Somehow cats have even permeated my last name.

    Dad, do you think that this makes us particularly cat-like? :) *purrrrr*
