The Arm Of The Cat

You know in Chinese restaurants

The waving, brightly coloured cats

One arm moves

In quasi human salutation


A cat could never sit

Straight up like that

And a person

Gets tired

And anyway

They are actually Japanese


The best and worst

Of both worlds


We can eat and eat

Or merely sit

Let things be what they will

The arm of the cat that waves or is still.
