Trixie comes down from Refrigerator Mountain (A poem)

A bonus poem about one of my cats, Trixie, since I did not come up with a poem for Day 12 of National Poetry Writing Month…

She surveys her domain from on high
It’s not an unbroken vista, but it’s enough
the time she spends there is not wasted

Eventually, though, she gets bored
with surveying her domain from on high
She jumps down onto the stove, then down to the floor

She approaches me all chattering nonsense
There will be no rest for me
until again she surveys her domain from on high
