Cat spent a month

Cat spent a month
trying to sleep himself
into a koala because
he couldn't sleep himself
into a cat

because he was never alone
while munching eucalyptus
his stomach burbled
strangely like the primeval soup
and he felt invaded

while ruthless genes
battled in his organs
because he was never
created Cat

the tufts on his ears
were looking too large
he could only sleep himself
into a koala
