Family Affair

Dog accuses

misty wistful wide wet eyes

full of wordless Knowledge

I so envy

his whimpering dependent Superiority

To be he

blissful, thick with assured certainty

Cat stares

through eyes half closed, distinterested

View unclouded

No discomfort to bring ill ease

to that quiet detachment

She to I envy

I long to be her queen of all in my world

needing nothing

wanting not

a divine grace

Bathed in the streaming light of the sun

I would be neither

He or She

My world is dark

it is under the night

He and she are alert there and shudder

It is a dangerous place

I and we the Masters

of he and she

There is no bright sun here

only we

I and the Rats
