photo of grey cat

I was created to notice the cat,

    catching butterflies.

    If I were God

    I would be lonely

    and I would need


    to notice

    how the cat catches butterflies

    and brings them into the house

    and how they are

    to her as big a prize

    as any mole or mouse.
