Freddy and Vic

Once I sat
With a cat in my lap.
I ran my hand
Along its back.
It ran.

"You have to give it space,"
Said Dan,
Whose cat it was.
How could I tell him
The cat sat on me?
I had only touched
What was there already.

After a while, the cat came back
But it was another cat.
"I always knew you would come back,"
I said to the cat in my lap.
