Cat Quartet

Joan McNerney

Winter
That tiger cat with
winking green eyes tossing
up balls of red yarn.

Spring
Inquisitive...
the gingersnap cat stares as
I get undressed.

Summer
Black and white kitten
lying under clothesline in
soft circles of sleep.

Fall
Windy afternoon
my calico cat leans forward
against the cold.
