why you and my cat are different

by Matthew Zangen

because he's mine,
and you can't have him.

I've twisted and turned the possible perspectives in my head, and I can't make the circuit complete. Expansion would be awesome.

i really like how wide open those 2 lines are to interperetation, and as a matter of fact, i found quite a bit of significance in them relating to my own life. well done!

This made me laugh when I first read it and then ponder for a lengthy period of time. Good job, sir, good job indeed.

I was expecting some long poem that had actually nothing to do with cats. This is great =) Cats are cool.

"You're not mine and you can have me," is what I got out of it. Clever. The title definitely caught my eye. I thought it would be a poem poking fun of someone with comparisons between them and how much better a cat would be (like, "You sleep all day, not like my cat" but subtle.) Caught me off guard when I only saw two lines.
