Cat Walk

(Lady In Pet Store)

she walks into the
   glitzy shop soft
followed by a herd of
 girls who wear jeans
      as if fit to fall

    to her credit she
    appears no older
yet maintains her pants
in place while bending
    down to cat-gyms
for her many felines who
      will love the time
      they spend therein

   sweet the young girls
watch her quiet browse
     they dream of one
 they’ve just now seen
and look on to the time
     they’ll be like her
