Eating Cat

Cat Meat

We poor little finches hate that
they’ve made drainage ditches.

We think it’s just silly construction
because you have no feathers, and

you don’t know how to fry seeds,
or roast a cat with mayonnaise.

I think there might be a road
where an Opera had feathers

and you could sing me
my ultimate fluff, and

I’d like to make a new fashion
in honor of my sister who
was tortured to death
by a feline fiend
