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






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.
