The World is a Cat

*

The world is a cat.

It knocks things over

that should be left standing.

It turns on you with tooth and claw

even when you are affectionate

towards it.

It draws blood,

pounces with unbridled savagery

on the weak and defenceless.

It has no shame, remorse.

When have you seen it

hang its head?

Yet, the world can surprise you

with sudden turns of affection

as it rubs against you

and purrs.
