Primal and Pampered

 If you want an example of nature
intersecting with civilization
all you need do is observe
                        the domestic feline. 

My Molly will snuggle, schmooze,
bound to the sound of her name,
expect prepared food 
at specific regulated times 

and yet . . . .

I've seen her snatch
           birds from the sky,
           bait and trap lizards,
stalk and devour mice and gophers. 

She is at much at home
skittering up a weathered tree 
as lounging on a velvet pillow.
                    ~~Judi Van Gorder

Prompt:  nature intersects with civilization.
