Black Cat

By Christopher Myers


black cat, black cat

cousin to the concrete

creeping down our city streets

where do you live, where will we meet?


sauntering like rainwater down storm drains between cadillac tires and the curb


sipping water from fire hydrants


dancing to the banging beats of passing jeeps


ducking under the red circling of sirens cutting through the night


in the wake of sunday night families spilling from blue neon churches


black cat, black cat, we want to know

where's your home, where do you go?

mysterious sneaking cat 


Think, think, think, then writer another verse to the above poem.
