Kitty accommodates English writer (4)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'writer' is the definition.
(poet is a kind of writer)
'kitty accommodates english' is the wordplay.
'kitty' becomes 'pot' ('pot' can be a synonym of 'kitty').
'accommodates' indicates putting letters inside.
'english' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).
'pot' placed around 'e' is 'POET'.
(Other definitions for poet that I've seen before include "Minstrel", "One writing verse", "Maker of verses", "Pound, say", "maker", "Writer such as Ogden Nash", "Rhymer", "Heaney or Yeats, say", "Bridges possibly" and "Masefield, for instance".)
