A FEW FACTS ABOUT CATS

Cats don’t say things like
Going for all around gold, or 
Razzle dazzle.

The more expensive the food
The more your cat will prefer 
Old pizza crust from under a dumpster.

On the other hand,
The more expensive the medicine
The tastier will be the water from the birdbath.

Cats seldom have scheduling conflicts.
Their definition of now begins with the future.
Restitution is a place where naps are taken.

Cats don’t usually wear 
Floral print shirts 
Nor do they need a whole lot of “external validation.”

After cats were created
God and Science joined hands
And threw away the key.


A DOG RIDING A SKATEBOARD

The bus stop shelter is 
A pain relief center,
Canopied with spider webs,
Sodden with snack wrappers.

The crazy old man is in his nest,
Sleep pants patched with stains,
Trapper hat with earflaps,
Boots sans laces clinging aghast to the feet,

Pointing to the parking lot across the street.
“I saw a dog riding a skateboard over there.”
So I crossed the street and saw for myself 
A dog riding a skateboard.
