The Cat Brain Disconnect

In that deep dark place
where the cat shrinks like to shout
they plied me with questions
before they’d let me out.

They demanded details
on the cat brain disconnect
so I smiled in my knowing
and said, “Oh yeah, that.

“It looks like midnight runs
fleeing the hounds of hell,
their rolling eyes
steering them all pell-mell.

“Yeah, I’ve seen all that
and so much more,
like the famous arched back
and the paw beneath the door.

“I could go on and on,
‘cause, you know, the topic’s ripe,
but the classic is the staring
like they’ve not seen you in their life.”
