The Cat Lover

by Peter Klappert

I loved you
with the teeth behind my eyes,
but we were just about equal
at mousing, and you never
had to be taught how to land
on your feet, or anyone else’s.
We probably should have been cats.

 

Yale Series Winner Peter Klappert is currently working on a long poem about Matthew O’Connor, a character in Djuna Barnes’ novel, Nightwood. (Spring 1975)
