Cemetery Cat

Saw an orange cat

in the cemetery last night

It seemed like a house cat

clean and friendly

rolling over when we pet it

when we continued walking

the orange cat followed

for long enough that we joked

it might come home with us

But then inexplicably it stopped

and looked up at the moon

Glancing back more than once

 we saw the orange cat remained

in that exact same spot

as if a statue now
