The Cat Sleeps

Later, the man will go to his job
counseling disturbed young men.
Now he sits on his porch meditat-
ing. He sits quietly, peacefully
for much time. Time goes by. He
is aware of many things. Across
the street and up the drive his
tabby cat comes. The cat has been
on a hunt. It is what cats do. The
cat sees the man and sits at his
feet. The man becomes aware of
the cat. The man’s head bows to
the cat. The cat jumps on the
man’s lap and purrs. The man
chuckles and goes back to breath-
ing deeply. The cat sleeps.
