There He Sits

There he sits
all stripes and eagerness.
White paws kneading my arm as I write.
He's chewing on the tip of my pen.
Misdirecting the sentences
so that they
up and down
the page.
this cat
loving and affectionate,
eyes blinking at me seductively
is he merely
feline hypnosis instead?
I believe
my energy is being
a crisis in the kitchen.
a vague image is
becoming much clearer...
of an
empty cat dish
forming in my head.
