Servitude



author's note:

Dedicated to two of my former teachers: Freddie, the street cat, and Simone, the three-legged cat.


SERVITUDE

One theory has it:
we try so hard to please cats
because cats are so hard
to please

just as gods can be...

So perhaps, we choose a cat
when we lack any better god.

But why do I need either master?--

serving this capricious life
humbles me enough...
