.territory.

we sat together chatting in the garden

i had mended the parasol with string

she wondered why people could not all

live together

happily

around the world

i had no answer here

the sun was hot & i could feel my face

burning

i told her that my cat hissed at the wild things

even when they were submissive

ah she said

it is because they are on her territory

ah!
