And So

And So

The cat howls in the basement
someone has forgotten to let him out
this morning everyone was too busy
and so he has spent extra time
in the basement
where he is generally just fine
sleeping on the worn-out armchair
and chasing down mice
but he knows when he’s done his time
just as surely as if he had a wristwatch
telling him in little cat-numbers
chasing mice-seconds
zipping around the dial
that he should be given free run of the house
and so,
the cat howls in the basement.

Jasper. Sitting in the kitchen. After being released from the basement?

  1. He obviously did not like the confinement….I too have a cat….he howls in the hall where it echoes throughout the house when I am not out of bed and he wants breakfast.
