i’m a lion
i’m a cat
i’m like a kitten who sleeps with her mother, tangled up in sheets.
i purr and when i hunt i look through my eyes like a cat.
i imagine that i’m in a cage in my room, being put on display like a cat at the pet shop.
the tall tower up above, like a cat in a tree.
i can never climb down though, not me, from a tree.
like a cat.
