house sitting / cats – prelim

Went to New York,
to see a lady
about sitting 3 cats
5 days in July
Peter Pan drove me
across the deep Hudson
grey sky and grey water
Took the A train to the 1 Train
to Washington Heights
Had fixed price lunch at
La Libertad
Fried chicken and salad
with cheese cake for dessert
Down 157th to
Riverside Drive
Stout man with straw hat
let me into the lobby
Said the Kingdom of God
is not of this earth
Blessed me 2 times
before he got off on 4th
I kept rising higher
to pet owner’s floor
Met at the door by
one orange cat, 2 tabbies
Got lesson in feeding and
giving them meds
I said I can do this
I’ll be back
5 days in July
