Here Kitty Kitty
Litter training the lynx seems like a good idea until it is accomplished and all concerned are less for the accomplishment. Domesticity is a transparent cage, which has a presence felt by all whether loved or hated. The air is changed and the cat stifles, everyone is safer, so it is said, but what are we safer from? And what is a broken lynx, certainly not a house cat?
Peer under obstacles then climb over
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
Just because the crows fly away when I arrive
doesn’t mean they are afraid
but they might be.
The obvious answers are usually the correct ones
but I must leave room for the unlikely answers too.
Sometimes a spade is a shovel
and a gofer is occasionally a retriever.
The world is a wonderful and fearful place
where possibilities are endless
if I am willing to allow the light
to strike these sheltered doubts.
Any day---any where --an alcoholic can stay drunk
or get sober.
