Night. Cats in heat cry murder to lovers.
Day stir, sleep beyond feral cur nightmare.
Light reflects green mirror-eyes of others,
right until morning, hide beneath covers
, sing tortured songs, tangled in pairs of
night, cats in heat cry murder to lovers.
Bright children of flight, new-minted mothers
, bay scent-songs vanish their fresh-marked lairs.
Light reflects green, mirror eyes of others.
Flight in her veins — beckon the shutters
, into the field of mice, a taste for blood flares
night-cats in heat. Cry “murder” to lovers:
and sight unseen willing to love her.
They lust; tire squeals, guitar strings, high beams glare,
light reflects green mirrors, eyes of others
, and human attraction, face buried in furs,
we pray she survives her feline affairs.
Night cats in heat cry, “Murder!,” to lovers’
light, reflect green, mirror eyes of others.
