their indifference as love by J. J. Campbell

i think
the cats
are finally
starting to
realize that
i am moving
on and they
aren’t

i was pleased
when i saw
some bird
feathers in
the stall
where i
feed them

maybe their
instincts will
get them
through

though i can’t
promise that
the new owner
won’t have the
county come
pick them up
and take them
to their death

i rest comfortably
knowing i gave
them more than
i give most
humans

as usual for cats

i’ll take their
indifference
as love

His last book of poems, Sofisticated White Trash (Interior Noise Press) is available wherever people buy books these days. You can find J.J. most days bitching about things only he cares about on his highly entertaining blog, evil delights. (http://evildelights.blogspot.com)
