FLY THE CAGE!
In a hyperactive leap across the counterpane of my bed,
housecats flew at the closed window, spurred
by an innocent, unsuspecting butterfly zooming
past the glass.
A clueless observer would have been astonished
by the activity; the cats acted
like they were going to see
a live mouse act, or something better!
But it was just a pretty, flapping butterfly
soaring past their view, that made them
want to fly the cage
of their normal world, to seek
the fluttering unknown!
