Ugly Cat Speaks

Eeek! A Mouse!

I recently had an encounter with a mouse in my house. The short version is this: two days, food stolen from mousetrap (which was left broken and useless, presumably by the mouse), useless cats becoming very useful after all, mouse gets evicted (by me). If you really must know the full version (which I am guessing you really don't), feel free to email me.  Here's at least one of the poems inspired by the event. 

Suburban Cat

ears high and rotating
to find that sound
scouring the walls or cabinets
she stalks it unlike hunter
but – even when she
sees her subject she follows –
like paparazzi – starstruck
at catching a glimpse of
that which, until now, has
only been a distant dream
