I look at the cats outside, and I envy them – sometimes.
They don’t have the self-image, I do.
I see them eating out of garbage cans, and I feel sorry for them.
Sometimes, I want to run away and join them, and lead them to a better life.
But my people would miss me, so I stay here.
Sometimes I look out at them, and sometimes I look inward, as though in a mirror.
