Oregon Demon Cat

 

The demon cat 

Lived in Medford Oregon

 

The demon cat was a big black cat

His eyes were filled with demonic energy

He stared at you 

 

Looking into your very soul

Filled with anger, and hatred

For the entire human race

 

He seemed at times

To be not from this planet

Perhaps an alien species

Studying the human race

 

Or perhaps he came 

Form hell itself

 

The demon cat loved to torment visitors

For some reason he hated the man’s daughter

 

The cat would stare at her from his perch

Down the hall from the old man

 

Then he would run at her

Screaming like an escaped banshee

Straight out of hell

 

She told her dad

Either the cat goes

Or I go

 

He said

See you later

 

The demon cat smiled

At the small victory

 

And she left the house

With the demon cat

Screeching good bye

Strange Cat Watching Me

 

 

 A cat sits on the edge of a bed

Watching me watching him

Both of us thinking

What sort of strange creature this is

That has invaded our personal space

Upending our daily routines

 

The cat came up to me

Staring at me 

with his soulful eyes

Boring into my very soul

Looking for answers 

To these dark fundamental questions

 

The cat smiles a mysterious smile

And purrs in contentment 

Having found an answer of sorts

And indicates that we can be friends

As long as I know 

That he is the boss of me 

 

And I pet him

Acknowledging 

the time honored

Ritual of human cat interaction

That dates 

back to the dawn of time

 

When humans and cats 

First became aware

Of the other 

Strange creature 

that shared

our planet 

 

Cat Dreams Kill Humans

Jake,  Oh my, I have one of those.  Although Molly doesn't look evil and with me, she is loving.  She is a sweet. soft. snuggly kitty and then she turns into a tiger hissing and swiping and attacking anyone else who may come near.  My vet has told me I have to tranquilize her before bringing her in next time. 😲

Jake, I do love these cat poems. My favorite memorable coinage which I can't get out of my head has got to be "human cat interaction." Also loved how the cat stayed and the daughter had to go. Awesome work!

Tony 😄

Cats are so mysterious just what are they thinking when looking at you, anyway I like this poem, long but to the point and is bittersweet, I also think that this poem could use some metaphors though.
