Doom, the stray cat, is crouching behind the chair
She slipped through the door from the hallway of consciousness
into my waking, rainy living room

She will grow to be the size of the couch and
swallow me with her golden teeth, yellowed
from eating too many birds in the backyard

All I can do is brush my teeth
watch in the mirror
and wait for her to eat me alive
