A slim black cat came into my life, suddenly.

Thus his name – Presto.

He did not purr.

For three years.

But then he did.


Presto pees like a panther,


Tail straight up,

A gush of urine saturating

The tree, or bush…

(or sofa or bookcase in his misspent youth.)

He is HERE.





He has my whole heart…


Perhaps because he has given himself so completely to the wild world.
