an all talk cat

the cat

who turned out to be

housecat in the end

knew I had something

going on

& wanted to take my hand

make some adventures

strike out to new lands

but his mother

had told him

real young

(& mean

but that’s a different story)

to watch out

for folk like me

as we’d take him

to difficult

dark places

& for all that

she was right

but what they forgot to know

these are the places

where people grow


if he tells you

he knew me well

smile & stroke him real nice

he’s an all talk cat

but no show
