The Circled Cat

The Circled Cat
Copyright 2013 Gordon Kuhn

Dark shadows moved close
To a circled cat
Un-belled beneath a starless sky
Who sought a certain foul smelling rat
And sprang with such intensity
Fluid like landed
Upon the startled fact
That lay hidden in life’s canyons deep
Too steep for most
Frightful for those who saw
But not so for the circled cat. 11/1/2013
