ME Gorgeous! Of course I am!

Kahlua

Spare Room Inhabitant

Author: Roy Schoenberg - Bay Shore, New York, USA

Kahlua sitting at the edge of the bed
washing herself, not thinking of what
lies ahead - sated on canned cat food,
not ill at ease...
not begging for tidbits,
contentedly performing a soliloquy.

I'll not disturb her,
just go away, wishing
I could perform the very same way.

Felines are wondrous,
they own the world.
If you have one,
you understand.
