Cats

— Nick Butterfield

I have a cat,
But I have never
seen a Mountain Lion
in the Wild.
Even the brave Spaniards
as well as the Fool were afraid
of the snarling sounds they
Heard from the hills
of La Rinconado de Los Gatos.

My cat will
sometimes attack
Me suddenly.
It happens while I’m petting or
Playing with him.
There is still some wild left in him.
I too am brave,
and sometimes
A fool.
