Brown Bunny and the Orange Cat

Sitting in my car
watching cars go by

Nice jazz on the radio
Eyes catch a couple of cats
playing in a driveway
playing cat tag
The brown one
jumps across the orange one
The brown one is an ugly cat
Long floppy ears
that don’t belong to a cat
It isn’t a cat at all
But a rabbit
Two friends, one feline
The other, bunny,
I love these two
Hop, hop,
over you partner
Funny looking games
Animal innocence
Two kids play
the same game
in a yard down the street
