A Real Cat

by Mary E. Lowd

She believes she’s real
She meows & purrs
Her paws knead
Her heart burns
She prowls & stalks
She lets you know
Exactly what she wants
No, don’t scritch there…
Right here: that’s right—
—beside the ear
Don’t go anywhere
Just let her sit
& enjoy that you’re near

Seems real to me
