Thistle seed sock

There will always be a next thing.

An unidentified bird
Found the thistle seed sock
We hung
On the mountain ash.
One cat stares out
The front window.
The other sits on the placemats stacked
At the end of the dining table,
Keeps watch
On the backyard.
The unknown bird
On the thistle seed sock
Is part of the scene
He is gone.
She is gone.
Cats are good at waiting
For the next thing.
They always seem to know,
There will be
A next thing.
