APED: "aww, kitty free verse"

Another in my occasional efforts to write free verse that doesn't suck. This is difficult, because free verse carries a fair amount of intrinsic suckage by its very nature.

Watch out for the small cat
waiting at the end of the hall
he lies on curled on his side
the sun warm on his fur
and dreams of his ancestors
who were tigers
and when he wakes up and sees you
his first thought
is "the blood would taste so good"
