A Poem for April

I wrote this poem in 2007.  It's not a great poem, but it's the only one I ever wrote about April.  So here it is.

april alley cat

the cat
sits perched
atop a red SUV
in a downtown parking lot
on a cold april day

just staring at me
as though in a challenge
“what’re you gonna do about it”

not a damn thing
because its cold outside
and i want to get inside to my tea
