cat house


collage by Jeanne



cat house

near the fire writhes white cat
atop another curved like mink;

hear a third a-licking lips
whiskers kicking in the sink.

howls and purrs; creeps up hearth
 warns the mice of feline whim:

listen, learn the cat-tango;
it’s not for poised or prim!

Parents Wear the Hats

Cats, dogs, horses, snow
men wear hats; children: crowns
for prince and princess.
