SHOWDOWN AT THE OK CORRAL

The minute, slightly mad,

Mockingbird

Flew across the lawn

Dashing against the porch railing

Just missing

As it – instead – swooped

Up to the edge of the roof

Hissing, Squawking…

Standing in the driveway

I responded;

And the cat, brown tabby, feral,

Hiding under the porch

Talking to me [meowed] as well

…it was almost like a duet.

AH.
