Astronomy

*

My little gray cat

round bodied

short legged

a full moon

lurks under sofas

tail trailing like a comet

eyes twin stars in the shadow beneath

a chair

and stretches below my feet

on the bedspread

and rarely

an alteration in orbit

creeping on cautious paws

trailing a rumbling purr

to rest against a hip

for a time

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
