CATMADNESS

 

Back in the 1970’s, when I was living and working in Virginia,
a friend came to work one morning and told me a story
about his cat, his girlfriend and a squeaky brass bed.
The cat kept thinking that he was hearing a mouse
and would come into the bedroom to investigate.
His story inspired this poem.

ELLEBASI

 

“There’s a hazy smile on her lips that won’t go away,
and her hair is a mess.
It’s like a brush fire filled with casualties.”
