an old poem of mine from 1995 – Parking the Car

Parking the Car


In the darkness of the next driveway

The eyes of the cat stare at my headlights

Then the tabby striped elastic band

explodes, blowing out the candles of my headlights

as I shut them off

and turn off the ignition key

and the cat crosses the street in the dark grey of midnight


The engine cools ticking

like a confused watch.


May 2, 1995
