Cat Toss

I'm throwing all of my cats to the wind
flying fur, claws, teeth and bowls of food
water and everything that I thought 
they needed to survive.

Later on, tonight, all of my cats
will face off against one rattlesnake.
Tomorrow I will once again
face what I detest
up against a wall I may ask for 
one cigarette and a final meal -

My cats will soon learn -
it's all about survival.
