MongrelsAndFeralCats


And so I

Tried this once

Like an experiment

Back in Denver

I went to

The same bar

At the same

Time I ordered

The same cocktail

Sat on the

Same stool and

Talked to the

Same bartender about

The same things

Every single day

For two weeks

Rather than causing

Suspicion from patrons

It caused curiosity

Who was he

This dependable creature

It’s simply me

Knowing that if

A dish is

Placed among mongrels

And feral cats

Eventually they dine

Without any effort

From me besides

Kindness and consistency

For most are

Frightened by things

Unusual at first

But eventually will

Come to me

Rather than me

Pleading for attention

So, what did you think?
