a lazy submission

my cat circles around
climbing up and down from my lap
she just can’t decide
where she wants to be
i can relate to that
i’ve circled around
a few times myself
wanting, wagering, waiting
only to settle in
for something
a little less dangerous
and a little more familiar
apathy consumes opportunity
in rooms of gentle reason
and immortality waits for no one
in the end
my cat decides
that she wants to sit with me
and watch
careless words
fall upon
an empty screen
this little cat
carries around
more wisdom
than me
