    To me, between the words and picture, I thought the cat was trying to stare down his own reflection, but thought he was staring at another cat. Which is really funny. Am I the only person who sees it that way?

      I haven’t had much feedback in terms of interpretation, but you are on the money, that is exactly what it’s about. I’ve often heard that cats don’t recognise their own reflections… I don’t know if it’s true, but it inspired the piece nonetheless!

    Haha! I like this so much! Not only poetry-wise but also because I happen to own a cat and the staring contests are endless!

      Ha thank you, I’m glad you like it! My family cat has many with his own reflection… at least that gives me a break 😀
