More Than Sometimes

by Steve Mitchell

eh

more than sometimes

I’m a cat

but

not all cool

no fast reflex hunter

I don’t land on my feet

more just

feral

but

not all ferocious

not with mean sketchy twitch

and low night time howl

just

you know

I like people we

talk and smile we

laugh and cry

but

I can’t relax

all in my space

where I live

they talk and look

do things

I can’t relax

there I am

there I’m not

a cat all

feral

more than sometimes
