Our Cat Has Taken

Our Cat Has Taken

to climbing the roof
at night

just when my wife
and I are

about to roll over,
turn off

the bedside lights,
and sleep.

The cat sits on a window
sill, meowing

hunger into our
room. So,

dutifully, I rise,
walk out,

scoop, and feed
because

my wife and I
have been

married years
enough

to know dearth
and need.
