Today’s Kill

A cat is a cat is a cat.
I don’t have to like that.
She gives me gifts
I’d prefer not to have.
Extinguished life.
Birds, mice, chipmunks and bats.
My bloodstain stoop
Her trophy case.
Today she stood proudly over a wren.
I think that’s what I buried.

(At least it wasn’t a rabbit ht Meredith)
