Only Human

I tried my best to learn,


Calico Manx stressed


always sprawled

near sunlight slant,

angling for attention.

The Stray one

Taught me magic tricks–


to dinner tables,


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.
