Shaggy dots form fields of yellow

deny demands for endless green

a golden roar

with roots down deep.

House cat watches with willful eyes

trails of fur over sink and range

at three o’clock shrill mews to remind

dinner bowls must be filled by six.

While we would define the world

other forces are in command

How can I say the cat is stubborn

when here I stand mirror in hand.
