NaPoWriMo 2013, Day #1 - the neighbourhood cat
The first day is always tough. It's hard to start the engines. But thanks to a cat the other day...
the neighbourhood cat
waiting for the lift
i watch the neighbourhood cat
sitting on someone's window sill
he would not meet my eyes
his whiskers sense my resentment
he sits there haughty
he does not care about clocking
8 hours or recipes or food courts
he will be fed if he just meows
did i detect a wee smirk
on his face, a disdain in the yawn?
he sits there like a deity
people look at me funny
i miss the lift
the cat won, comfortably.
