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

the night
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

dirtier
colder

and

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....
