The Cat

Pat the Cat

That’s what they called me.

I never understood why.

Did I walk stealthily across campus?

I don’t think so.

Was I mysterious in my quietness?

Didn’t try to be.

What cat-like qualities did they see?

Did I move with powerful confidence like a Black Panther?

Doubt it.

I was a terrified freshman.

What did they see?

Even now I wish I new.
