Reflections 2015: Jerry Springer cats at 3AM

Every damn night
Or early morning I should say
As I am finally diving into the depths of sleep

The cats come rumbling across the neighbors’ rooftops
Sounding like a Maury Povich or
Jerry Springer or
Sally Jesse Raphael show

Brought right to my balcony

The hoots and calls of rejected lovers
Yelling in triumph and justification
For not having to take any responsibility at all
In the troubles they bring on to others

Like me losing my sleep
Get off my welcome mat with your hissy fits

They scream and paw their way down the staircases
And growl vulgarities at one another and drunk men
Making their ways home after a long night of
Social drinking with co-workers

And I just want to go to sleep
