Best of Three?

For anyone who’s ever had their feet attacked by a cat …

 

His complex undulations
Of soft fur and sinew,
Tumbling after bedmice
In the fresh washed sheets.
The paws pause,
The game ends,
The belly up, surrendered.
Competitive eyes
In their whiskered frame
Reach out to ask,
“Best of three?”
