Fur

cat stretchingFramed in every window
Dissimilar shades of shape
Stretching and cavorting
Clawing at the drape
Mummy’s little fissiped
Daddy’s little foe
Trust the feline fickleness?
Enquire deplumed dado
Calm; serenely watchful
Emerald glinting glare
Vain, aloof, offensive
And very much aware
A clawing wailing demon
A playful purring pose
Erratic volatility
It pleasantly bestows
