woke up in the early morning in a panic
green bin day
made my way downstairs in the dark
cat doing his utmost to trip me up

outside into the moonlit morning
cold air licks my face
as i come back in i can hear the shriek of a pheasant
echoing across the fields
the cat races me back to bed
commandeering my pillow first
his yellow eyes smiling at me in the darkness
