:: Nature Calls by Allen Itz ::

He lived a bright and carefree life,
happy,
a Creature of Nature
during her most bountiful seasons.

But,
Nature is a fickle bitch.

She gave him water and sunlight,
food to keep his belly tight
and a cool and leafy universe
of trees to climb,
to race through,
to chase through
from branch to branch,
trees
to hide in, to sleep in,
to creep in, to play in.

She gave all manner
of good things to him.

But,
She,
the jokester,
the duplicitous hag,
also brought the hunter,
the yellow-eyed pouncer,
the monster who hides
behind the sunlight
to bring the dark.

She who brought the blue sky
also brought the cat.
