Cat on Lap

Standard

The cat named Mailman
touches my nose with his nose
then purrs and stretches.

Impossibly cute.
I wouldn’t say I like cats
but this one, paw up,

claws in. This one is
cute, soft enough, and asleep
on my lap. But soon

he will be less cute
a human fed predator —
hired mouse snatcher,

leisure bird killer.
Surely a natural drawback
but I hesitate.
