Cat Woman
by Toby Ilsley 2016

I am that old lady
Your parents warned you
Not to become
I am Cat Lady
Old Lady
Spinster
Childless
Bookish
No filter
Not silent
Not schtumm
Ha Ha Ha!

I am that old lady
Alone and cat-ridden
Silently scribbling in the night

I am that old lady
Your parents warned you
Not to become
I am Cat Lady
Old Lady
Spinster
Childless
Bookish
No filter
Not silent
Not schtumm
Ha Ha Ha!
