a poem: why cats and introverts go together

Cats and books and introverts tend to go together
Because cats have a quiet energy
Most of the time
They are docile, sleeping much
Not noisy, padding on soft feet
Their touch mostly gentle
I say mostly
For like introverts
Inside they must be bursting like novas
The energy let out in brief,
Intense explosions at three ams
Or all of the sudden
Skittering away after nothing
How many introverts have felt
The same desire
To suddenly, with no reason
Jump up and run away after nothing
To see ghosts where nothing is
To stare off into the void they see beyond the thin fabric of
Our atmosphere
With eyes wide and staring
