A Cat’s Appetite (Haiku Sequence)



RT’s apartment has a largish, brightly sunlit living room. Waking up in the morning can be an exhilarating experience, with the light coming through the windows–as was this case this morning. And what else might have roused RT but the hunger of his cats? Here is his response:




a cat’s appetite–

the ultimate

short fuse



thrushes in silhouette–

the roosts and gables

of Martinsburg



11 weeks old–

mom gazes out the window,

hopeful, curious.
