A Meow in the Wind

I dreamed of an oscillating fan built to temper and tame near-feral cats. They called the fan The Cat Whisperer. What luck! For I co-habitate with near-feral cats who shit where they please, rob the birds of every song, and carve my furniture to shredded signs of true ownership. I turned on the demo unit and the fan whirred to life. I wanted to believe The Cat Whisperer would work. I wanted to tame that which the wild had first dibs. I wanted to interrupt nature so friggin’ hard.

Hemingway’s Warning

There’s a cat in the closet
A cat in the closet
There’s a cat in the closet
For you and me

There’s a cat in the closet
A cat in the closet
There’s a cat in the closet
With golden feet

And that cat in the closet
Stoic feline in the closet
That cat in the closet
Bares bloody teeth

There’s a cat in the closet
Bloodthirsty cat in the closet
Golden kitty in the closet
For you and me
