The Cat of the House greets me as I return from a long nights work.
Mewing from inside
calls to me: hurry!
Behind the door,
the cat of the house looks up:
Where have you been all night?

Zebra-stripe-tiger blocks my toes.
The cat of the house
mews long and loud.
Too long! Gone too long.

Paws thump on the counter,
and vault onto my backpack—
the cat of the house—
paws massage my shoulder.
Green eyes in the mirror peek
from behind gold locks.

Zebra-stripe-toes strike
from behind the chair,
the cat of the house:
Tag! You're it.
