I.  The Shadow Knows


Who knows what evil

lurks in the hearts of cats?


II.  Rottweiler


The feline

makes a beeline

for the treeline.


III.  The Fourteenth Way

of Looking at a Blackbird


I was of one mind

like a cat

stalking fourteen blackbirds.


IV.  A Tale of Two Kitties


He was the best of cats.

He was the worst of cats.
