A poem about an alley cat
Green-yellow eyes watch
From a cardboard box
In an alleyway
An alley cat
In an alleyway.

Slick black fur
Long tail twitching
Inspecting me
Standing in an alleyway
An alley cat.


Hesitantly padding over
Rubbing against my ankles,
Purring slightly
Before bristling at my touch.

The alley cat has run away,
Back into the alley,
Silent as smoke,
Twice as dark.

Before coming back,
Following me,
A house cat,
In a house.
