The Cat Knows

Cat On Newspaper

A poem about cats and priorities, as seen through the example of an experience with one particular cat.

The cat knows nothing

of literacy

so she walks up

to the paper

I hold in front of me.

And she sits on its other end

(far beneath the fold)

and stares

looking puzzled

at the end I still hold.

And when I release it

she tramples it all

then settles down


like a little cat doll.

She knows

she likes comfort

and places to hide

and she likes having someone

to be by her side.

And she knows

where the food is

and the litterbox too

and she knows where to go

for an outside view.

The cat knows all that

she needs to know:

that now

is the moment

not some time ago.
