the return of scooter



The Return of Scooter

the cat
who disappeared
when my
dog came
for a
visit has
started coming
around again.


For a
week she
came in
the front
door &
went straight
out the
back but
today she
up on
my desk
made a
thorough investigation
of pencils
& pens
the tin
cup full
of paper
clips &
bands &
all the
cords snaking
out the
back of
my computer.


Then she
dropped into
my lap
rolled over
on her
back &
with her
eyes hooded
to purr.
