The Professor’s Cat Explains

Is it raining outside?
Sunny? I can’t see.

I hear scraping sounds out there,
somewhere.

But here I sit in this goddamn box:
smooth sides, cardboard stench,

Food dish in the corner, and
that weird water bottle—

I’m waiting for you, for somebody
to lift the lid

So that I, too, can find out
what happens.
