Once A Mouse

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

Mouse in my walls

nibbling on the wires

leaving little reminders

on the floor near

the holes you gnaw

from.

.

How you eat the cheese

without disturbing

the trap. How you run

across my guests feet

at dinner in search

of crumbs.

.

Oh, little mouse! One day

you will grow too big

and venture outside, but

beware. Six big Tabby's

roam my hood and they

are furry adept

hunters.
