Free Verse: Cats Are Selfish

My damnable cats are selfish
Last night,
They could have helped me
When I was falling asleep

They slept
On my blanket.

Now when I have hit
My second wind,
They trundle
Like tiny horses
Cantering from room to room.

Right now?
This is a distraction.

At least last night
It would have kept me awake.

My damnable cats are selfish.
