Alley Cat Gamble-
Ever heard a cat fight princess?
Seen one maybe?
Or were you too busy licking
Your pretty little paws?
well, it’s Howling back and forth
crazy Hissing and Growling
echoes through the Alley.
this is my Kingdom.
my daggers retracted, senses Sparked.
a Scream as i rake my claws across his eye.
Blood drips from the green kaleidoscope
and the stars above laugh at him from above,
a resentful Audience.
Dancing in cut time- a quick rythm
passing overflowing garbage cans and vacant homes.
teeth plunge into me, and don’t let go.
no chance for Escape, except to let go.
i let him take my flesh.
whiskers Perked, ears Alert,
pawsteps drowned out by my own pain.
Adrenaline pumps though my veins,
thick as all the Blood i’ve taken.
It’s nasty princess,
A dirty business.
You can’t handle it.
My wounds are still healing.
Fur still floats through that alleyway,
Remnants of our gamble caught in the wind.
