cat's eyes

gaze out at the verbena
the heliotrope
the fading newness of the afternoon
soaking up all that has fallen
all that is coming
the spaces between the rain

cat's eyes are blinking now
tranquility shutting out the day
squinting out the truck muffler
roaring up 107th
magpie squawks and claw trims

cat's eyes are hunting now
iris and glass
triumphant bug that will not be taken down
pause for paws
green light to wings

cat's eyes are staring now
this yard and a thousand waking dreams
