Jack the Cat

Paw in claw out
Head turned in
Eyes tight and limbs loose

Blank soft silent wings
Steal life love long on feather tips
Gone gone
Feed fowl found for night
Blood fur and bone
No I will have those things too

I am the night before and the day after
A dream
A death
A scream
My breath
Lost
Cost
Cause
I am the root
The leaf
Ant
Wind
Night
Not here
Unheard

Bark and branch
Drop down from
Canopy the way is
Short
But safe
Eat until you
Must then get home
