That Cat Thing

I know why you do that, cat, that thing where you come
    and you circle my feet and you cry and you cry
    and you don’t know why.
I know, cat, that you don’t want a pat, that you don’t
    want to play and you’ll just run away
    and then come right back.
I know, cat, that you just want to cry–
    and that is enough cat-reason why.
