BLACK CAT
(10/20/06)


shimmering darkness
conspiring with the sun
the light both lost and dancing
on the velvety smoothness
every movement and motion
caressing the cosmos

flashing green
focusing on events
beyond human detection
eyes slowly closing
to capture and devour
each vagary of vision
before opening again
to hunt anew

she stretches
and leaps gracefully
down
from her fence-top
perch

Halloween
is coming soon
and there is work
to do
