Midnight.

The cat
It’s black
Crazy claws on hardwood floors
Scratch and scrape
Cringing ensues
Up the stairs
Down
The leather mouse dies again
Roaring fireplace, hypnotic
A moments respite
The flames rile
Flying, leaping, out of control
Purring fur ball
Sleeping
Now

Hi. I'm Rachel. I grew up in the Tri-Cities. Been here most of my life, tried to leave for a few years claiming Eugene, OR as a temporary stopping point, but inevitably came back. Something always seems to bring people back here! Go ahead, try it yourself someday, it's uncanny.I'm a backyard chicken farmer, supporter of keeping it local, allergic to gluten, mother to a shining star and wife to a nerd.
