I peel back
on all that frayed
in the midst
of each induced
Twitch of a tail Feline twerk Gorgeous eyes Bit of a jerk Light outside Yell down the hall I ate my food, But I want it all Eating from Brother's bowl Clearly I have No control Pleasantly plump Abundant paunches Wide backside I've got some haunches Sassy, salty Like my mother Hissing, growling At my brother He chases me Around all day I'm stuck with him, Can't get away But I've a good life - I'm sure of it In Mother's lap, I purr and sit.
EYES OF STRANGE
Featureless skies Crawling through holes in the night Falling from the light Climbing shadows on the walls Captive to a spirit without a soul
Number 9 of many
Last chapter of the book opens up on the same page on the same one once again the eyes close and see as if they were open filling the soul with stones to keep it from leaving here and where here is? Where is it, at last my body is of no value at all it hurts me and I'm hurting it back down on the dirty street leaving traces to find here. For months on my hands the matter of life people coming and going but I keep coming back to here the life's matter. My back in the cold in the cold bone marrow picture in the mind all those breaths it'll be the first time I breathe when I get out of here.
