Tabby Cat
Carly, Age 11, Huntingtown, MD

glowing eyes
tattered coat
watching
waiting
for the silent movement
of a mouse

creeping
through the old barn
where shafts of light peer through cracks
and shattered windows

a soft pitter patter from above
the tabby cat spots a
small
thin
tail

a long
      swift
           jump

one day's work
done.
