Cat in the Cold

Crib about
jetlag. Binge eat
on a flight
serving oily fries.
Hang on trees
bungee jump and
throw up on your car seat.
Kill time and
watch flashlights
under water.
Douse in gasoline,
lithe and smooth and green.
Suck on tangerine
Make sense of your
friend’s cold coleslaw. Served in
casual cutlery. Cute.
Mess up sheet,
loosen your pocket,
change dropping
noisy clashing,
get locked out
of your own apartment door.
Dripping in rainwater
sit near a trashcan.
There’s a cat out in the cold.
