getting a little pussy one fine afternoon

judy came
into my room
without knocking.

she was
holding a box

and wearing only
a t-shirt
that covered
half of her ass.

“you got anything
to drink?”
she asked.

when i came back
with her beer
she was sitting
in the middle
of the floor
staring at the box.

“so what’s
in the box?”
i asked.

she took
the lid off
and began crying.

i looked
and in it was a
half-smashed
cat’s head
without the rest
of the body.

“jesus christ judy”
i said.

she took
a drink of beer

stroked what was
left of the cat
between sobs

looked at me
and said
“I knew
you wouldn’t
understand.”

she put the lid
back on

picked up
her beer

and didn’t
shut the door
on her way out.

i stood there
feeling like
i’d just
missed something.
