Cat Fucks

Cat, far removed
from whims
and outside loyalties,
nevertheless found
she kept pace
with the progress
of reason
in the days
when the progression
was exhilerating
and most had

to sleep with her,
he did not
find himself
falling off the face
of the earth
and into a trailer park,
but he found
he had recovered
for his cause
some definition
of intimate,
the word and act,
and he no longer
of exterminating her race.
