Dreams and Cats

What He Doesn't Say

I think my cat's been to Ulthar
he visits pretty regularly
he has that "Don't Mess With Ulthar" air
about him in the morning
when he comes in
he's not afraid of ghouls
and I can tell that night gaunts
know his name

The clincher, though:
my neighbor dreamed of a city
full of cats
most of them were black like mine
they seemed to know her
rubbed against her like my cat does
kept her safe; she's sure they chased away
several kinds of hungry things
the city's name? "Uther" she said
"or something"
