Some Bigger Beast.

I am a little cat
Always on the doorstep of your heart
Brave with a broken bird
Or miserable mouse
Dangling from my proud mouth

And when you will not answer your heart's door
When my scratching and
Muffled meows
Cannot shake you from your soul's fragrant slumber
Then I will leave the little spoils of my victories there
And go and find some bigger beast to vanquish
Something wild and wretched
And more worthy of your honor
