Cat Eyes image from

The persistence to pursue you with
meow and mane,
tooth and claw retracting under a purring of special moments that make me arch my back and moan
then roar-
evidence of scratches in the morning all scarlet and puffy
awakening to a Cheshire’s smile and exposed fang
Tomorrow once more,
I will be Plain Jane.
