Cat


From the moment she grew a tooth
and knew
to use it with a look,

an  implied
word,
one indifferent

purr,
nobody ever
stood  a chance with her.




Purpose


It's not so strange
the way an apple
draws the rain,

how we answer
to our names,
the way the mare

shakes her mane,
or how a man
will fix his gaze

on the thing
he means to change.
