The Cat who Tickles the Evening-star

by Aidan Andrew Dun



The cat who tickles
the evening-star
with her tail as she travels
a twilight wall
in cold blue air
four-legged ballerina
electric princess
who finds me amusing
exemplifies something
in her character
not only enigmatic
grace and clairvoyance
warm milky fur on
nocturnal patrol, perhaps
sardanapalian duality
become compliant
the tiger reduced to
manageable dimensions.
