Zoe Disher

A fine romance

They met in twilight seclusion.
He strong and sleek, she with light footfall and timid step.
His bold eyes watched her.
Anticipation gathered like storm clouds. White teeth flashed.
He waited.
She minced towards him, then backed away, startled.
Yet he caught her and held her, gently, keeping back his strength.
She broke free, momentarily.
They played a game as old as song, of torment and desire.
Then surrender. She lay lifeless for the inevitable consummation.
Cat ate mouse, washed his paws and curled up to sleep.
