The Solipsistic Cal by Neil Ellman

The Solipsistic Cat
by Neil Ellman

In the mirror
Sees itslelf
And nothing else
But sometimes wonders
Where and how
Its dish was filled.

The anachronistic cat
So out of place
And out of touch
And apolitical
It does not know
The month or year.
It sports its fur
And doesn’t care.

The somnambulistic cat
Wails its mournful cry
Wanders through
The alleys of our minds.
It sounds more like a poltergeist
Haunting all our dreams.
It sound
More like a ghost than cat.
