Dead Bodies

In the morning we found
two dead bodies
on the patio and yet
no sound of fight
disturbed the peace
overnight.

Only a cat would leave
victims of crime
exposed like that
and vanish in a trice
leaving behind the bodies
of two dead mice.

The above incident is a bit of a mystery. Our cat used to leave us ‘presents’ but we no longer have a cat and indeed have not even seen one in our garden for many, many months!

Please note that I will now be taking a short break for about a week.

Caught

Caught in the beam of the headlights
leaves scuttle across the road
like mice.
