The Urban Cat

prowls the day time lawns searching the right porch-
a grotto for this mountain lion (cat) until night.
She soothes her fur; relaxes paw on displaced bag.

Out jumps the cat as boy thuds a book bag-
home from school hurtling his body onto porch.
Cat goes to other house she was at last night.

She pounces away from the sprinklers at night
and is spooked by a bush holding a bag.
She remembers her claws and marks another porch-

telling that bag and porch that she isn’t afraid of the night.
