Breaking news: Kitten Takes on Monster

a used shoe lace
scrawled on the kitchen tiles
a scribble of lethal potential

a kitten
crouching behind
a fourest of chair legs

twelve seconds
suspicion

head lowers
hind quarters
adjust

pounce

battle of claws
and wiley tangles
multipodal monster

victo—

is that a gnat
or a dust mote
drifting by?
