crouching under a medium umbrella
during a downpour is guaranteed to
wet a few things, mainly your bum
and the clothing there-attached
at least that’s what I did while
poaching for the cat: I was coaxing
her to come out from under the deck
from her dry spot at the back
in the corner and getting a  dry cat
to come into a very wet area
is not the brightest task as the cat
and my wet bum will tell you
the upshot was I got the cat inside
dry, and I got myself off to the movies
wet, and I think the cat won that round.
