++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In the darkness of the night,

as I look at the window,

through which shines the outdoor light,

I see the back steps’ shadow,

+++++

and the shadow of a cat,

Leslie Catherine Taylor,

who might one day hunt a rat.

My friend cleans her feline fur,

+++++

sits on an elevated

step, taking in the view from

on high, then decides to get

a new view of her kingdom.
