Gracie Takes It Easy

By John I. Blair

While we watch Springsteen on TV
You couch in comfort
On the bed’s edge,

Cool stare at the darkness
Outside the window screen,
Ears pricked just a bit

At some sub-audible sound
That might be rats, bats,
Other cats in the night.

No excitement here,
Just alert, pert,
An implication you might pounce

If life requires; or not.
For after all, the bed is soft,
Your people warm.

Tuna crunchies might appear.
