Night Things

A fly buzzes just above the kitchen sink

I don’t want to smack him just yet

The cat watches and chatters like crazy with frustration

Her prey is just beyond her reach

When she swats it, stuns it, eats it

In less than a second

I understand how fast life can change

And it goes on still

for the rest of us
