We Two Tomcats

Actually neither of them was a tomcat: both were neutered. But they were great friends.

He lives next door
in this little, shabby
apartment complex
my friend the tabby.

We’re young. We lie
under cars, chase squirrels
sit on fences
sing out for girls.

We love the summers
hate dogs and rats
climb trees together—
we two tomcats.
