GreenI envy cats. I've always wanted to be a cat.Green7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The other day,
I'm sitting in the passenger seat of the car with the most beautiful white cat you'd ever see
driving me to the store, talking about something that upset me greatly.
As I try to distract myself from her words, I look out the window.
But then I look up to see a bird
darting in and out of sight behind trees and houses
and I wonder, do cats envy the birds? Do cats want to be able to fly and be free?
And then I wonder, do the birds look down on the cats with envy and wish to be as free as they, away
from their nests and obligations?
I don't think cats have purpose or obligation, but then I think, maybe I want to be a bird instead?
I do like birds...
doesn't that make me a cat?
