From her perchabove the human drama,
Misty, the cream-colored cat,washed her paws clean.
She knew her way around
her master’s apartment.
Her kitten days,faded like the album cover
by the turntable. Ella Fitzgerald sang
the cat’s namesake’s song.
Seductionfor her master’s friend,
still irritable on the chaise lounge.
Whenever mad,she’d kick off her pumps—
her right foot would cross her left. After another glassof Chardonnay,
about his thousand violins
and why his hello
no longer sounded sweet? He poured himself
another glass of wine, lost in words
that lost their meaning.
She took her hat and gloves,
said a swift goodbye.
The cat ran to the closed door,
encircled her master’s legs.
His eyes,too misty to notice.
El Cóndor Pasa(sung by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel)
Wild like the condor,
he followed the distant flute.
Strands of hair,
blew across his face.His horse left ghosts
on the Peruvian playa. I walked on broken shells,
hummed the saddest song,
El Cóndor Pasa.
I became the hammer, not the nail,
the sparrow, not the snail,the forest,
not the street,
the swan wanting to sail away. The song forgot about my necklace,
