Wholely Other

All I have to do is watch the cats
and I know when my wife arrives home.
I don’t hear her at the side door but they do,
even before she touches the knob.
Off they go to meet and greet.
I force myself to remember they are nothing
but stimulus/response machines.
There is no love, no love lost. It is as if
their hyper-acute sensing costs them
