Puss ’n’ Boots

Declawed fingers wrap kennel bars,
Poker faces hide a pacing mind.
Scratching at old dreams.
Favored fantasies of sun-soaked naps and candied
caviar,
Face a harsh reality, full of frazzled fur and
tuna-flavored gruel.

Cataclysmic.
Catechize.
Catenae.

When soulless boots were stripped away,
All that remained was a stray Tom.
