Roddy Williams – The Atheist Poet

the neighbour’s cat (2016)

black and white cat
trap patient
set waiting on the child high wall
furred flat by sun.
a young boy’s scream
‘that cat scared me!’
registered, is unacknowledged.
an eyelid raises
fractionally
a claw sighting
then slowmo droops
slides to the lock position.

she’ll get him on his way back.
