this night inspires

I could take the entire night sky into my eyes
without blinking I could rise lithe as wind
leap the ladder of chairs and windows
stare down the bb-eyed raven
who would get my back
up —
her swift
talon’s talents
at a loss, only combing my hair
tufts of loose winter
of touchless day
coming away
freeing
bird
and
I.

    Hi, Michele sent me.

    I have a lovely brown patched torbie of my own.. and I have to say, she rules my world… along with her 17lb big brother, who’s just an odd black/white/tan tabby.

    Love your site

  4. Hi Michele sent me and I hate cats but I love your writing!

    This is a nice post. Reminds me of the great wine-talk metaphor in the film Sideways which I just saw.

    Miaow.
