Poem Cat Poem

The Poem cat Purrs
By Katie McAllaster Weaver
The poem cat
slinks into the
resting soundlessly
on the windowsill.

Warmed by the
autumn sun,
the poemcat purrs
itself into
a deep sleep,
dreaming of
like the wind.

If it feels like it,
once awake,
the poem-
cat sometimes
crawls into my lap
letting me rub
its stomach
in hopes
it might shed
enough of itself
for me to resalvage
and reuse
