Looking Down

The cats
were so used to
looking up. They
hunched on their bellies
like hairy doormats 
and their eyes turned
like those of animated
bedrom slippers.
So high I stood,
all of my 5 foot 3.
Feeling the pain
of back cramps, I
bend to feed them,
wild animals
somehow brought servile
into my tenderness.
