Let Seeping Cats Lie…
Let sleeping cats lie beside you
and sync your heart beat to theirs.
Touch their fur, for they bring you comfort like that
bear you clutched 1/2 century ago in your crib.
Enter the harmony of their purring
and let their dreams become yours.
Their eyelids rolling and flickering,
like candles in their chase,
They are killers but they are lovers
and they feel safe curled against you,
dreaming of critters outside the window
that fly and wiggle and twitch, beyond their reach.
Giving your arm a rough lick, turning over
they float on their back, while the moment fades.
Looking up, you are everything they need and love,
but it’s time to explore that bedroom with door ajar..
