Dark Knight-tress

Silk less feelings

Vanity fare from any sun
Warrior of beauty

crave artist’s practiced hand.
Justice, nearly blind, yet watches—
unwrought art upon a stand.

Regard the brushes in a row—

Clearly, my cat loves 
Sound of her claws on
The floor, click-clicking;
Going on all night.

Except for when
