The restless cat doesn’t know if it’s the itch of mold in the air
The sound of cockroaches scuttling across the cold floor
Or the winter that chills both
and the day
like an accusatory stare
That causes his hair to stand up straight like it does.
But the fact that his hair stands up at all tells him he should leave
For at least a little while.
And although he will most probably end up somewhere
S t r a n g e r .
He feels like a change and has, unfortunately for anyone who thinks they own him, never been domesticated....
