The Ascent of Cat

by DavidKM

The Ascent of Cat

only some cats make it to Heaven

their exclusive clubhouse

is a dark place for the non-feline

sure, there are sunbeams to stretch out in,

plazas full of lolling cats

human servants stroke their bellies

exercise leashed mice & voles

clean & rake the litter gardens

but when darkness rises

it does so frequently

the land becomes a catutopia of prey

liquesent forms, more claw than limb

end the lives of squeaking things

again and yet again

and if there is a dawn

a dusk is close behind
