Omens

 

two crows had been having quite a conversation

much to my mother’s consternation

for she believes in omens

 

I believe in cats

 

my neighbour’s black and white cat

sauntered across our driveway

stood staring meaningfully at out front door

 

in sudden silence

 

I had a one way chat through the door

the cat politely pretended to listen

before sauntering home again

 

I remain catless

 

perhaps tomorrow I’ll sit in the weeping gum

chat to the crows about the perfidy of cats

and the seriousness of collective nouns

 

and omens
