Cat as Athlete Philosopher

Cat kept up
his ideas as a gymnast
might keep up his body.
It was a terrible relief
to stretch himself every morning
to begin work.

Cat trained.
He practiced for fits
of flawless action,
for impossible stunts
and tumbles
and a tight finish.


  1. I thought that you couldn't display or publish your poems yourself if you want them to be published in official magazines?

    [Not that I don't enjoy discovering them posted to your blog for my reading pleasure.]

  2. These ones are all being published in Confluence in the new year ( Confluence doesn't seem to care about first printing rights) - so I'm putting them up.

  3. I always get excited when I see your poems up on your blog.


Speak your piece.
