this small package of muscle & claw confined
to the bathroom bound by two fatal diseases
& strong enough to yowl this morning
packed into his cage & driven to the old porch
the old handouts the old napping chair where he sniffs
a corner, smells some other cat & takes off running
joyous muscle capacity across lawns & tiptoeing
up driveways to randomly piss on flower bushes
poke his nose into abandoned houses cross
the street refuse to come back
home to the tiny bathroom
where he recuperated
some spirit after having his balls
sliced apart
