#178. tom’s cat too

February 19, 2010

“A jaguar who is the night sun”
the chuff hnnnh chuff of the hungry cat
at dusk backlit
by the remains of
the westering star
the prey looks for cover
but I

#156. Once a tom cat

January 28, 2010

once a cat licked the mortal dust from its fur
groomed down through time and his own fate
knowing purrs emanate pure disinterest in his own

once a poet cast a shining eye on the world’s web
grew up through time a wide understanding of beauty
truth a delicate force ensphering other creators
in the endless.

who is to tell what is once and what is still to come?

#129. the calico

January 1, 2010

the calico
was licking her paw
she had it extended behind
her ear

the smallest child
was stroking her tail
the purrs soothing last minutes

#42. a fragile close

October 7, 2009

a fragile close

lies fine like
        fragrant linen
                lay full between us

an essence distilled
     of a mundane finish
         over a divine origin.

the shattered crystal
        the broke angry knife
                 the wife lost

crowded in a dangerous bed
          where a husband rejects

glowing dancers allow
            strangers to fashion
                             magnetic myth

creating a six month
              world of winter cat
                        spring sex

and bonds
          unbreakable by marriage
                                 divorce or death.
