The Black Cat’s Tail

24 Oct

In honor of the black cat’s dominant position in Hallowe’en legend.

The Black Cat’s Tail
by L. Stewart Marsden

Crouched to pounce,
White paws afore,
The sleek black cat intently stares,
His lucent eyes, wide and fixed
Upon the object of his glare.
His tail atwixed the left and right,
A metronome of crescendoing beat
Precedes his jumping to his feet
To claim the prize on which his eyes
Have firmly locked.

And, oh, if that small morsel, white and pale,
Had just observed the black cat’s tail!
