Because You Can

Monsieur Chat, sitting upon the sill
because you can,
because you fit so perfectly
in that small plane of space

No one would ever know how much
you can sprawl
outstretched belly in both directions

Not one person could ever guess
at the lion you are when you
lower yourself deep in the tall
spring grass
patiently waiting for that plump
morsel of field mouse to unwittingly
cross your path
and you pounce because you can.
