From Scratch

code-cat grows legs and scratches back at the reverse of the screen
bites a chunk of something in half
and watches
as the sink holes appear
close up the touch screen and shove under the sofa
black beetles back
buried the bodies under the carpet
newsfeed closed down under the rag rug
and fire lit for evening
smoke rises from the chimney pot and the house is now a home
cat out
no peeking now until the night has cleared off
