Catch Some Wide Eye


one evening
at about 1
in the morning
it dawned on me
that never once
had i memorialized
the creature that sat
calmly purring
in my lap
the one who chased pens
across my desk
and greedily gobbled
paper up
like a true author
thirsting for more
the one who
watched over
the grading of papers
just to make sure
i was doing it right
or perhaps
just thought it polite
the one who
snuggled every book
as if it were his last
the one who
tried to type
along with me
or entered
into an instant
message chat
with a GFLK
or an !/P
and a feline sense
of approval as
he puts his nose
up to the flashing
screen wondering
what could possibly happen
