A Cat's Tail
Metronomic, schizophrenic
Tic, tic, tics...
Three evenly spaced 
	beautiful tics suspends time
		Tic, tic, tic...
Then an up tempo
	Tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, tic, 
		double time
a pause mistaken for a stop, 
	a stroke, a purr
Then two, pause, eight, pause, pause,
Three, ten, four, five evenly spaced 
	beautiful tics.
