the best laugh i've had all day

by M. F. Sullivan

outside for a cigarette
with the rain drizzling

when down the street
a female cat
yowls with the force
of a red light blazing
in an alley.

four toms appear
running in a line along the fence
a chubby fifth trailing behind
almost slipping as he keeps up
all their coats flashing past
in a rainbow
as they rush
to their obnoxious feline gang-bang.
