Our Aviary

You are a cat
We are the birds
In your cathouse
This birdcage

We wish
You would pin us down
Breaking pin feathers
Playing out feral nature

You only stalk us
Rustling feathers
We cackle nervously

Your primitive impulse
Could destroy
Aloof claws piercing
Our diffidence

Then you would not have
This menagerie
Your feathered harem
