No Cats Will Dog Me

This is no life
where I have no
sheep to herd
or cats

There is a status cat
who purrs for me, but
she will betray me
for a mouse
to toy with.

She could catch him, and
play him with a yarn, but

he doesn’t know why
her fickle heart would
palpitate on a glorious whim

But there is her love sail
that gathers the wind, and
I am blown away.

I wait on my island
for her to be shipwrecked,
because she doesn’t know
I love her.
