Miss Hiss

September 14, 2012

Lady come lately,

Instant queen.

Massive milquetoasts cowed by

Ferocious feline femininity’s implacable will

Burning in a cross-eyed glare.

 

Testy, tetchy, touchy:

Nudge tail       HISS!

Stroke nose   AHHHHHH!

Polish head      YUMMMMMM!

Brush hip      HISS!

Catch tail       HISS!

 

A skirling growl warns minions

Of paper-thin patience,

Then – HEAD-POUNCE!

Throaty yowling- snarls and

Backlegs pumping paw-daggers.

(The sound itself intimidates.)

 

She sashays in, tail acock,

Settles in tight.  Metronome tail-lashing.

What’s that?  A purr? 

How fine!                                            (How… rare….)
