The Slinky Cat

The Slinky Cat

You sit on the window
sill statuesque behind the
closed curtain.

When the sun shines
I can see your ominous
shadow on the fabric.

When the sun goes behind
a cloud you disappear,
magically.

But I know you’re still
there watching me, to
see if I make a false move.

Then the sun again, and you
won’t let me forget you.
Like a bad penny.
