Feline Queen (Draft)

Today's poetic challenge through Writer's Digest - channel my spirit animal.  Even though I love dogs, I am a cat at heart.

Feline Queen 

I come to you on my terms only.
Soft and sweet I can turn and draw blood in a moment.
Don’t doubt that.

You can touch, when I choose
and you will be happy and possibly angry ,
because you can’t do anything about it.
Spend too much time, or get too loud and
I will turn away and efficiently block you.

You envy me, enjoying my own spot in the sun,
my windowsill,
my perspective.
You hate me for the very same thing.

Just one purr,
one brush of me against you,
and all is forgiven.

My girl, AJ - she taught me well!
