wild things

grey kitty showing up at the door
yowling with a dead sparrow
in his mouth
how the tiny bones crunch
as he eats it on the kitchen floor
leaving only the two wings and a
foot locked into a claw shape

how he looks different
after he kills and eats a bird
rather than after he chomps a bowl of kibble

the wild thing in him
gleaming out his eyes
