Cat Outside Window

A cry from afar feels near
Like Romeo beneath the windowsill
And there I peer
To see peachy back of the meowing cat
Pushing out the plaintive meows
Masquerading as cries for help
Or children at play at dusk
Does it cry for food or love
Is it lusting or starving?
Hard to tell from a window on high
Haunted in sleep by that cry
