STRANGE SILICON AND CIVIL SOFTNESS

 

“Twas when I was a wee bit younger and I’d spend
me nights down at the pub with a few pints,
scribbling in little black notebooks,
sussing out the lads and lassies…”

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.
