The Cat

                                                       By David Michael Jackson
I was created to notice the cat,
catching butterflies.
If I were God
I would be lonely
and I would need
to notice
how the cat catches butterflies
and brings them into the house
and how they are
to her as big a prize
as any mole or mouse.
