    Nothing Else To Do With Time

    The cat can’t make up her mind.
    “Do I sit in this window or not?”
    I think she has a favorite window.
    I thought she had a favorite window.
    A window to the world.
    Filled with questions she can’t answer.
    Answers she is so desperate to know.
    Knowing is everything to her
    Because it is control.
    Control is definite power.
    Power is definitely dangerous.
    But danger isn’t what worries her.
    She has done some dangerous things.
    She likes jumping from high places.
    The bottom is somewhere below
    but she doesn’t know it.
    She thinks she can fly.
    No wings.
    Eats her weight
    so she can get heavier
    and heavier
    wallow and roll
    in happiness
    in joy
    and then light.
    A bright light.
    A sign really…
    that speaks
    to her.
    It has her name written all over it.
    It’s her light.
    Her height.
    Her flight.
    Her world
    from inside her window.

    She just can’t decide which window to sit in.
    The beauty of choice...
    ...and time.
