TENDER TERPSICHORE

 

“Why was I the one who forgot what I thought I had known?
Tell me, and why am I the one who has seen Barcelona alone?”

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.

DARK CORNERS

 

“The bright dawn flooded the room,
and swept the fantastic shadows into dusky corners,
where they lay shuddering.”
