somnus felis

curling
round and
round to
sleep
her body
rises
and falls
nose twitch
le g s  s  t  r   e  t  c h
pff
a sneeze slips
trace along ear’s
edge andtwitch
she opens one
eye
seeking who
dares dis
turb
her slum
ber
yaaawwwwnnn
my! what
sharp teeth you
have! the better
to bite you
legs reach
out claws
piercing
fabric
tail touching
sky
as she
waves
goodbye.
