Cats and Keyboards

  My cat jumps on the sofa
  looks at the keyboard in my lap
  with unmistakable disgust
  places a delicate paw
  on my knee
  and utters a soft "meow"
  "Please get this intruder
  out of my rightful spot."

  I pick up the keyboard
  he settles in its place

  The e-mail stays unanswered
  the cat purrs
  I read poems
  and rants
  by other people
  clicking the buttons
  on my trustworthy
  WebTv remote.
