Cats At Their Bowls Lapping
Imagine Angela,
after all these years,
rising and gliding
to check on my pie, 
wouldn’t that be something?
Angela, come to Chicago,
and bring all of your cats.
I’ll watch those cats 
in your lap napping,
you in my lap napping,
the cats at their bowls lapping,
and I in my chair laughing.
Angela, bring all of your cats
and come to Chicago
to make Coquilles St. Jacques
and Jefferson Davis Pie.
“If ever I cook dinner for you,
it will be Coquiles St. Jacques
and Jefferson Davis Pie.”
