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.
