Only Human

I tried my best to learn,

Honest.

Calico Manx stressed

geometry—

always sprawled

near sunlight slant,

angling for attention.

The Stray one

Taught me magic tricks–

levitation

to dinner tables,

mind-control,

disappearing into mid air.

I’m too slow, I guess.

Too slow and thick-witted.

Too distracted by purring motors

to grasp CatWisdom,

too fascinated by the color green.
