Last Night

set alarm to get up to watch Live at the Basement
dragged self from bed with blanket and pillow
made a nest on the floor of lounge
cats drifted behind
like debris caught in wake of boat
and settled
once becalmed
in crook of knee
and bend of body
kitten draped across abdomen
as is her want

a cosy purring puddle of fur and blankets
with sleepy eyes
peering from under tousled hair
at favourite band on telly

loathe alternate version of OCH
but have visions of 1920's dance floor on cruise ship
as if a bbc production of an agartha christie novel
as is played out before horrified ears

Stranger Strange magnificant
The Slant heartbreakingly lovely

if only cats hadn't decided to trash the flat
with early morning acrobatic chasing games
between 4:30 and 6:30
it might nearly have been the perfect night
